The objectives of this project are to increase awareness and understanding of the Baltic Sea ecosystem, complex interactions humans have with it, and the role of biodiversity as the cornerstone of resilient natural systems.
This project intends to:
1) Adapt an existing cooperative strategy game to incorporate key elements of the Baltic Sea marine ecosystem, collaborating with the original developers.
2) Use a reference group including scientists, policy makers, educators, and children to identify potential modifications (e.g. difficulty levels), include accessible supporting materials for educators, and to ensure accuracy of ecological interactions.
3) Develop a tabletop and digital version (freely accessible) and make widely available.
