A computer-based game to understand the impact of climate change on health and to determine actions/policies for preventing the spread of diseases.
Students will play a game to identify diseases from their symptoms, learn about the impact of climate change on health, and choose actions or policies for adapting to and mitigating the spread of diseases.
Use this tool to help your students find answers to:
- What are the major vector-borne diseases and their symptoms?
- Explain whether climate-related factors could influence the distribution and spread of vector-borne diseases.
- Recommend specific actions/policies that can help in mitigating the spread of vector-borne diseases caused by climate change.
