    Event description

    Selling Community Adaptation : Turning a social change, community engagement initiative into a product

    What happens when you cross a team of nerdy role-playing do-gooders with a film-maker who is passionate about community climate change mitigation?

    Kiri Bear from Amble Studio tells the story of The Adaptation Game. A collaborative, storytelling board game and community building initiative about adapting to the impacts of climate change. Developed in partnership with Good Morning Beautiful, TAG has become a marketable product rolling out in local governments across Australia.

    Having spent most of her working life in NGO or government organisations, becoming a business owner and developing a sellable products has been quite a shift for Kiri. She will share her ins and outs of doing business while doing good. 

    This is a story of design, collaboration, science and fun with plenty of bumps and hurdles along the way.
