The board game asks 2-4 players ages 8 and up to collaborate in making a city sustainable. This will include areas such as transport, industry, governments, and even convincing the city’s inhabitants. Every player of the game will start with an identical deck of cards and will have the ability to buy additional cards from a shared marketplace. Players will have to balance income with reducing carbon, all to achieve the goal of a truly sustainable city and win the game. 

Possible was founded in 2009 with the goal of cutting carbon by 10% by 2010. The organization has been involved in a number of sustainability and climate action initiatives in the UK, such as increasing the use of solar power in railways, campaigning for reducing cars in cities, and granting perks to travelers who vacation sustainably. 

The game’s royalties will go toward climate action projects increasing sustainability. Bookmark the buy pages and get ready for little green activists to get into action with Carbon City Zero: A Collaborative Board Game.


In this board game, players will take on the role of building a sustainable city. Using a deck and cards bought from the shared marketplace, 2-4 players ages 8 and up need to balance their budget while reducing carbon.
