A game to learn about the planning and management of resources in order to improve the resilience of cities to climate change-related events such as heat waves, ocean acidification, hurricanes, and sea-level rise.

Students will lead fictional cities and assume decision-making roles to help their cities combat and adapt to climate change.

Use this tool to help your students find answers to:

  1. Describe and discuss resource management strategies that would improve the resilience of a city to droughts caused by climate change.
  2. Describe and discuss resource management strategies that would improve the resilience of a city to ocean acidification caused by climate change.
