Project title: Board Games – Pursue a sustainable living in big cities
Believing that education is the first element of sustainable development. We need good talents and appropriate course materials to sculpt the next generation that to have possibility of continuation. Thus, we decided to design a board game, so that men, women and children can gradually experience the connection between our city life and nature.
We hope to design a board game that passed through many of the life issues facing the city now. For example: "over-fishing of marine resources, development of land-based environment, stray dogs in cities, etc." Through the packaging of these social realities and the reflection of roles, such as: "coordination of economic value and environmental conservation or confrontation between power and morality", so that people who play can be more recognize the many aspects of the real society, and understand the empathy of the world, let them think, to continue that spirit.
It is hoped that participants will be able to think about sustainable development as the main goal in their play, for example: "Overfish fishing has become a social problem, and between the role fishermen, the government and environmentalists. Achieving balance and developing policies to limit fishing? There are a variety of agreements." This is just an example, with the concept of sustainable development between urban and environmental economy is what we want to reach.
