How can we balance between our need for advancement and our planet’s ability to sustain our ambitions?
One Earth is a fun climate change game for 1-5 players.

However, in doing so, you must also ensure you work together to ensure the sustainability of our planet and its survival. There is only One Earth, and it is our duty to protect it.
How To Play
One Earth is a turn-based game player over several rounds. During your turn, you earn currency. You may then use that currency to fund "Projects". By doing so, you increase your country's prosperity but may increase collective greenhouse gas "Emissions". In a standard game, the first player to score 20 prosperity points while maintaining global emissions at a safe level wins. However, if "Global Emissions" (emitted by all players) reach 30 or more, everyone loses. Thus, players must balance between their individual objective of gaining prosperity and the group's objective of keeping climate change under control. This unique tension between individual and collective goals is what makes this game so much fun!
During the game, you may also fund "Technologies" and "Climate Policies" that help improve your prosperity and/or reduce "Emissions". You must also contend with climate change "Events" and economic "Sanctions" voted on by players that will affect your plan. All this makes One Earth an easy to learn but a game that requires a lot of strategic thinking and diplomacy with other players. Best of all, One Earth can be taught in less than 5 minutes and typically takes 20-40 minutes to play.
