CD - The human causes and effects of landscape degradation.

 

Play Catchment Detox to see if you successfully manage a river catchment and create a sustainable and thriving economy.

It's an online game where you're in charge of the whole catchment. You get to decide what activities you undertake - whether to plant crops, log forests, build factories or set up national parks. The aim is to avoid environmental problems and provide food and wealth for the population.

Could be used as part of an assessment. Students play the game then write an analysis of their actions and the consequences of these on the catchment
