Strategies and drivers of change in a Forest Landscape


The MineSet game allows gamers playing the roles of CEOs of logging or mining companies to explore the environmental, economic and social impacts of their decisions.

The game features all the major underlying drivers of land use change in the tropics: 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.​
