The future of civilization and the biosphere depend partly on what is accomplished in the classroom today. Population, resource use, and population’s impact on the environment are often studied separately and passively. In life, however, these variables are intertwined, so it’s useful for learners to see how these variables are connected. This game is a simple but effective activity in which students strive to create a sustainable civilization.
