The Game

"Next Exit Chemical Safety" is an educational game that transforms important facts about hazardous chemicals and wastes and our living environment into a playful learning adventure. The hazardous chemicals and wastes covered by this interactive game are under the scope of the Basel, Rotterdam, and Stockholm conventions.

The concept is based on the idea of escape games, where a small group must solve a complex task within a given time frame. Along with the game, educational materials are being developed that provide teachers with a wealth of background information and ideas for further projects.

The game comes in a box that contains all the necessary materials. It has been produced in an edition of 500 copies in English and Spanish. In addition, a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) version is also available to help teachers create the game themselves with minimal effort.
