Step into a world where the fate of the planet
hangs in the balance.
A world where collective action and ecological
transition are not mere buzzwords,
but urgent calls for survival.
Welcome to Planet C-Play Again?
In immersive game workshop designed to
make you rethink your beliefs and
empower you as an Architect of Change.
In a time when the fragility of our environment
and polarization of our societies are painfully evident,
we invite you to embark on a journey like no other.
Explore the barriers and levers that shape collective action,
and discover how your choices can make
a profound impact on the world around you.
Because, after all, there is no Planet B.
What is Planet C-Play Again?
Planet C takes you to a landscape under transition.
Survival, thriving, and preservation are at the core of this seemingly simple challenge. But don’t be deceived by its simplicity, for the world in which you find yourself offers little control. And you are not alone. Alongside fellow players, you will navigate this evolving terrain, where every decision and action matters.
Planet C is not just a game.
It is a collective learning process and an opportunity to reshape the narrative of our future.
Through this interactive workshop, you will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to become an Architect of Change, a champion of the ecological transition.
Planet C is an immersive experience.
Experience the power of collective action, discover room for win-win solutions, and forge connections with like-minded individuals who share your commitment to the planet.
Planet C is rich in experiential learning.
In the debriefing we link the game to reality! After the game, we help you to reflect on your experiences in the game. Together, we will identify challenges and barriers encountered, as well as the strategies that enabled them to overcome the challenges. We then translate these experiences into learnings for reality and link it with relevant theoretical content.
The time to act is now.
Will you rise to the challenge?
Will you overcome the obstacles that lie ahead?
Our aim is to make people play & understand
Who can take part?
Planet C is for everyone!
And all those who want to unlock collective power and overcome polarisation!
We have played it with authorities, managers, students, citizens, indigenous communities in the Amazon rainforest, researchers all over the world, experts, journalists, consultants, game-enthusiasts and game-sceptics.

Who are we?
Planet C is carried by a Collective of experts and an amazing community of facilitators that join forces to transform the society from within.
The Collective hosts researchers, experts and facilitators from French and Swiss research institutes, universities, associations and consultancies. The Collective is led by LEAF Inspiring Change, a transformation consultancy and spin-off of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich.
We are experts in the fields of ecology, social justice and natural resource management and are experienced in facilitating immersive processes and creating a safe space for learning to happen.
Our assets are:
- A scientific base validated by publications
- A decentralized community of facilitators
- A web-app to play in person and remotely
- Training modules for facilitators
Together, let us explore and imagine ways
towards a more resilient, cohesive world.
Based on years of R&D
If climate change or the loss of biodiversity are existential threats for our societies, why do we still fail to engage the ecological transition?
Barriers to action
We identified 4 locks that keep us from change
Lack of awareness, conflicting beliefs, diverging values and limited means – we argue that understanding these 4 barriers is essential to unlock a path to collective action.
With Planet C, we bring together key theories to better understand how to unlock collective action, enable common management and engage in constructive dialogue.
The game explores the role of communication, trust and cooperation in developing a collective strategy.
Architects of Change
Understanding our minds to unlock change
A prominent theory that we have developed to better understand the reasons why we have not taken action yet – despite existential threats to our societies – is the Theory of Mind by Garcia, C.A. et al, 2022.
From lack of awareness to conflicting beliefs, values, and means, we identified four locks keeping us from change. We argue that understanding these barriers is essential to unlock a path to collective action. By grasping our minds and the minds of others, we can move from being an Ignorant to becoming an Architect of Change.
We found that it is not enough to sit down at the table with people of good will*. We need the tools and the know-how to be able to use the collective potential and invent solutions.
*Le Page et al (2016)
Moving from understanding to doing
Planet C creates a space where we imagine the change we want to see and try it out
The game provides an experiential learning opportunity to try out and understand by taking action in a safe space.
