Environmental trading game

Motu’s environmental trading game is freely available for download. Participants act as farmers in a nutrient (or emissions) trading system, though the game can be adapted for any other environmental problem. It is suitable for use with any group interested in better understanding these issues, both in an educational or professional setting (and comes with non-technical instructions).
