Humane Educators' Toolbox: The Oil Game

Thanks to a recent post on Treehugger, I discovered an intriguing video highlighting a lesson called "The Oil Game," which, as creator Tom Harper says, is "designed to explore our oil dependent lifestyles and to question how we might move beyond that to a less oil dependent, more sustainable world."



In the video clip below, the students are engaged, thinking critically and creatively, solving problems, and developing positive solutions.

I would love to see what the whole game looks like in action. It seems like a great opportunity for students to explore something complex, important, relevant to their lives, and able to help them become active citizens in creating a healthy, just, humane world for all.
