Sunken City: A NYC Climate Change Escape Room
By Human Impacts Institute
Overview 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.
