  • A cross-curricular assembly program for all students or for professional development of staff
  • The world population is growing by 80 million a year
  • Global warming and climate change are serious issues that result from burning fossil fuels and destruction of the world’s forests (deforestation).
  • Two nations, India and China, have almost half the world’s population.
  • The United States, the world’s largest economy, releases more carbon into the air than any other nation.
  • A sustainable future requires all nations to come together and seek solutions to global issues.

Sustainable Earth creates that kind of community.

Suitable for Grades 4-12 and adults, this interactive simulation engages 50-175 participants. Action takes place over several hours in  a large room, using large floor maps of the continents, media displays and presentations by participants and facilitators.

Participants are immersed in global economic, social and environmental issues, with climate change as an overarching challenge.  Teams use communication and critical thinking to develop solutions.  Participants bargain and compromise. Teams develop a carbon trading network and are challenged to reduce global carbon emissions.  The action culminates as players develop personal plans of action for their own lives and communities.  Pre- and post-simulation activities extend the skill and content acquisition.

“Actively engage participants!”

“Presented complex information in a way that was easy to understand!”
