Presentation: Rediscover your Love for Nature through Eco-Games
The World is changing, Climate Change is a real threat and we need to do something about it as soon as possible. In my opinion, the first step to awake people is to let them realise how amazing and beautiful Nature is. If everyone falls in love with our Planet, the urge to regenerate and protect it will appear. I created a card game, based on my experience working in an environmental facilitation with the use of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Theory of Multiples Intelligences and the Integral Theory so everyone feels included in some category of the game. My main goal is for people to learn things about Nature, about their own actions and the consequences of their actions on the planet so they can understand what needs to change and what individual actions can we do to change the world bit by bit but in a fun and relaxed way. I’m working on a European version of it, since the game was created mainly focused on Portugal for my thesis.
