Understanding sustainable communities
Planit-Sustainability learning simulation raises awareness about sustainable development. The learning simulation models the life of a community. Teams play organisations a local partnership and need to create a sustainable community.
The core learning simulation (computer based resource management game) is a sophisticated model of a virtual community. The simulation allows a group of decision makers to develop strategies and improve problem solving skills. The simulation is used within a workshop setting and requires 8 sub teams to consider reports, make purchases and review objectives. Win-win-win solutions need to be negotiated and incidents avoided.
These decisions are processed in an algorithm and are graphically represented on dynamic screens and allow the delegates to get immediate feedback on what they have done. After each round, the teams are scored on sustainability indicators and public opinion.
