Atmosphere

Our atmosphere is vitally important in enabling life to exist on Earth. It must remain in perfect balance or devastating consequences could occur. Global heating is a result of changes in the concentration of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere, trapping heat and causing temperatures to rise. This deck centres around air composition, carbon dioxide levels and extreme weather, while also providing solutions such as renewable energy and decarbonisation. Understanding the importance of our atmosphere is crucial if we are to curb emissions and mitigate the risks of the climate crisis.

About our Decks

Our DIVERSITY DECKS® sow the seeds of sustainability whilst sparking curiosity. For those eager to learn more, each card has its own unique factsheet on our website, providing individuals with the opportunity to delve deeper into the science of sustainability!

DIVERSITY DECK® is a collection of 16 card decks, covering different scientific topics, from good bacteria to the telluric planets, from hydrosphere to polar animals. Each deck centres around sustainability and aims to sensitise individuals to its importance, whilst also providing valuable insights into what we can do both collectively and individually, to make a real difference, now and in the future.

Many classic card games like Crazy Eights or Black Jack can be played with each DIVERSITY DECK®. Each game varies in difficulty, so there really is a game for everyone! Our two special cards, Calamity and Parry, add even more fun and strategic problem solving to the games.
