REVISED GAME PLAY
UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge provides an exciting and authentic learning experience for students in Years 7-12 through the online strategic game, Aqua Republica, to explore issues and solutions relating to water management and sustainable development. The age limits are not strict – capable upper primary students are also welcome.
The new mission-based approach to Eco Challenge incorporates a more sustained engagement with the principles of water usage across industrial, urban and agricultural systems and the impact upon ecosystems. Climate change is also a major consideration.
TEACHER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING
We are also offering online Teacher Professional Development that is badged and certified. Just a one hour commitment when it suits you.
