Problem Space

Conservation and water health are increasingly important policy topics, yet there can be disagreement over the value and care of natural water resources.

Proposed Intervention

Through play, participants are introduced to Basin Health Report Cards as an important tool to help inform policy decisions, bring a multitude of stakeholders together to define how they value their river basin, and galvanize public support to improve the overall health of a river.

Social Impact

The game has been played at conferences all around the world. It continues to be facilitated by WWF at professional convenings and has inspired the organization to consider the use of other Big games.
