Sunken City: a NYC Climate Change Escape Room

Collective and Clue Chase NYC have partnered up to bring a climate themed escape room, Sunken City, to debut at the House of Solutions as part of Human Impacts Institute's artist-in-residence program on Governor’s Island. It will challenge visitors to work as a team to unravel clues and puzzles based on sustainable initiatives currently being implemented across the city. Set in a dystopian future NYC affected by climate change, teams will solve puzzles about possible climate solutions to prevent future calamity.

This fun and impactful way of engaging people through a hands-on approach defines the importance of working together as a community to combat climate change. The escape room takes about 15 to 20 minutes, offering puzzles and clues that relate to the OneNYC 2050 / Green NYC initiatives and cover sustainability options like solar energy, water filtration, composting and recycling.

RSVP here will let us know approximately how many people to expect and connect you to our community. Please, book your specific time and day at Join us at our House of Solutions every weekend this September and see if YOU can escape climate change in NYC!

This event is part of the Sustainable Travel and Leisure and Youth and Climate Activism programs of Climate Week NYC.
