(Forest) Landscape game
The MineSet games allows gamers playing the roles of CEOs of logging or mining companiesto explore the environmental, economic and social impacts of their decisions.
All the major underlying drivers of land use change in the tropics are featured in the game: demographics, economical and finance signals, governance and transparency, technological changes, and cultural differences. As the game unfolds, the players discover the complexity of the system, and can devise new rules and strategies to balance development and conservation.
How we are using it
We have used MineSet to support a negotiation process with FSC in the Congo Basin around Intact Forest Landscapes (IFLs) and to facilitate discussions about landscape management.
