Playing with Fire: Environmental Teaching with Dungeons and Dragons

Join us this month as adventure unfolds,

When dragons and dangers to climate are told.

How teaching can help us to bring changes soon,

Before it’s too late and the future is doomed.

Our guests are Heather Duncan and Eleanor Gold, who explain how Tabletop Role-Playing Games (TTRPGs), including Dungeons and Dragons, can be used in classroom settings. These games can help students imagine and play through positive environmental futures in a space that highlights creativity, adaptation, and critical thinking.
