Plummit Summit Game

On the evening of September 6, Nazareth Retreat Center hosted approximately 25 people who gathered to play the Plummit Summit Game in Crimmins Hall on Nazareth Campus.

This “trivia night” workshop game night is designed to show how lifestyles can change and greenhouse gas emissions must plummet. Each team, represented by a geographic state or region of the world, worked to reduce the rise of the global temperature trying to keep it under 1.5 degrees Celsius.

A facilitator guided each team through a series of decisions, some were left to the roll of a dice, and others were made with information. Teams could score additional points and further their opportunities by contacting legislators, registering to vote, and learning about the recently passed Inflation Reduction Act.

Teams then used their acquired data to make decisions on a variety of issues including carbon taxation, energy efficiency, and renewables. This data was entered into the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, “En-ROADS” (https://www.climateinteractive.org/en-roads/) where the team learned if they had kept their temperature beneath 1.5 degrees Celsius.
