The idea and content of the workshop are protected by the Creative Commons licence BY-NC-ND, i.e. credit must be given to the creator, only non-commercial uses are permitted, and no derivatives or adaptations are permitted. This means that you are allowed to use the game for events that are free of charge, public and organised by unpaid facilitators. You may also use the game as a teacher, even during your working hours. Any internal use of the game within a company is considered to be a commercial use (see conditions below). You may not modify the content of the game, unless you are authorised to do so by the author Cédric Ringenbach, or for internal use only, with no external communication and with a clear mention of the website and the author.
You may use the Climate Fresk for commercial purposes. In this case, you must pay 10% of the amount billed as royalties. These fees will be collected by the organisation The Climate Fresk to fund its development and all non-profit activities. You can pay the royalty fees online.
If you wish to use the Climate Fresk internally within your company, the royalty fees are € 3 per players, regardless of the amount you may have paid to print or order the cards. You can pay the royalty fees online. When using the Climate Fresk material, it is strictly forbidden to remove the mention of the website and/or its author, or to add the logo of a company or organisation.
We cannot control how the game is used by everyone across the world. We trust all users to act responsibly and 1) contribute to educating as many people as possible with the game and 2) respect the copyright and pay the royalty fees owed to fund the project and the organisation managing it.
Any questions about the workshop, the licence fees, the cards, our statutes…?
