The Game

"Next Exit Chemical Safety" is an educational game that transforms important facts about our living environment into a playful learning adventure. The main topics of the Basel, Rotterdam, and Stockholm conventions are being treated by this interactive game.

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 will be produced in an edition of 500 copies in various languages. In addition, a DIY (Do-It-Yourself) version will be developed to help teachers create the game themselves with minimal effort.
