New interactive gaming exhibition in Droitwich to showcase a planet damaged by climate change

Droitwich Editorial 8th Jan, 2024   0

A NEW interactive game showcasing what Worcestershire’s future might look like if climate changes continues to take effect will be exhibiting at Droitwich Heritage Centre over the next couple of months.

The Severn Rising 2222 project challenges the residents of Worcestershire to learn more about climate change, pollution and the direct impact it will have on their community.

Through the game, people can experience what the city of Worcester might look like 200 years into the future, where Worcester has been flooded, humans have left and the city has been consumed by nature.

Organisers are urging people to consider how much of an impact their individual actions can have on the environment.

The games console and temporary exhibition will be available at the Droitwich Heritage Centre at St Richard’s House from January to March 2024.

The project has been supported through funding from Arts Council England, Emley Foundation and Worcester City Council.




Grant funding support of £33,125, has allowed the running of ten community workshops, employment of local artists and specialists to develop and create the game, support a tour of the game around ten Worcester City venues and raise awareness of climate change in Worcester.

There will also be an online version of the game available to play which you will be able to play either in browser or download.
