Abstract

The educational Ecodesign game SuLi (Sustainable Living) aims at transferring basic knowledge about sustainability to young people onwards in a playful way. When playing the game, the impacts of producing and consuming goods are displayed. The importance of design and production decisions is transferred and the players are confronted with the consequences of their activities in an enjoyable but reasonable manner. This knowledge about the impacts of production and consumption along a products´ life cycle will help preferring environmentally sound products that were produced under fair conditions. The integration of the target group of the game takes place at an early stage of development so that their needs and wishes can be addressed and taken into account. During the testing phase the practical use of the game is also tested and evaluated on this high school.
