You are going to go on a school trip with your class and are searching for a program about biodiversity? You know that your pupils don't find environmental education program exciting and would rather play with their smartphones?
Then it's time to explore Finde Vielfalt Simulation.
Watch our video about it:
The geogame Finde Vielfalt Simulation is a simulation game for pupils from class 7 and upwards, which challenges them to discover nature and puts the biodiversity at the centre of things.
Within the game the predicament between economic interests and nature conservation objectives has to be solved. The teenager dives in into a game narrative, which leads them to real places in nature, where they have to solve tasks about biodiversity. The player needs to make decisions which influence the game outcome. To deal with the predicament is one of the key tasks in youth development.
The goal of the game is to achieve economic success and also to maintain biodiversity. Depending on the achieved score it is
deceided which award the player gets.
Those who manages to trade sustainable and profitably will be announced “great orchard grower with glamour factor”.
The game is available in different versions matching to the natural area of the ten project participating youth hostels, which are distributed around Germany. The players can either do cattle or sheep keeping, can reintroduce lynxes and wildcats, can cultivate a traditional orchard or can deal with conflict of use in the country and in town.
