We will publish a final report after the Warwick Players — and you! — have had your say. Please do comment, perhaps using these questions to stimulate your response to this Interim Report:

  • What’s its most interesting point/aspect?
  • What would you add to it?

  • What other comments would you like to make?

You can either respond below, or send an email to


The Warwick Players took part in The Game in on 21st June. They knew back then how urgent it was to act, before the extreme weather events over this summer.

The opportunities (in section 4), challenges and dilemmas (in section 5) they foresaw are now all the more apposite, given recent extreme weather events and their looming impact on our food supply system.


This Interim Report has a summary comprising only two sentences:

  • What is the carrying capacity for humans on this Earth? And how are we going to get there?

The Players’ collective response goes a long way in answering the second of these questions.
