"Our project focused on raising awareness to ecological issues by challenging people to find solutions for saving our planet. As a preliminary step, we researched and compared the environmental effects of transportation in New York City and Los Angeles to the transportation in Frankfurt and Berlin. Next, we brainstormed and evaluated ideas on how to create a more ecologically friendly transportation system. Besides transportation, we also explored problems related to agriculture and the production of plastic and discussed issues related to waste. In a final step, we made use of our research findings by creating board games that reinforce the idea of taking action in order to reduce one’s personal ecological footprint."
