30. November 2018 | UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge 2018 at University of West Florida, USA

Students in Section 8046 of the Introduction to Environmental Science course (offered by the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences) took part in the UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge 2018 by playing Aqua Republica from November 19-21 as part of their course unit on Water Resources and Pollution. Students reported that the game helped them realize the hard decisions that water resource managers and politicians have to make when it comes to managing scarce water resources and the forces outside of such people’s control such as a drought or a polluted water body that negatively impacts water security for all.
