How would you invest in a forest? Would you cut it down for timber, or preserve it for carbon credits? Would you clear it for oil palm, or build a tourist eco-lodge? Can you get rich—and be eco-friendly at the same time? These decisions are yours to make in “Landscape Game.” Race your opponents to build your wealth, but don’t ignore the impacts of your actions if you want to win. Landscape Game was invented by Herry Purnomo, a scientist at the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and a professor at Bogor Agricultural University (IPB).

“The purpose of the game is a learning tool to understand that in the landscape, there are many actors with legitimate interests. It’s for academia, community members, policy makers—anyone who is interested in balancing conservation and development, including climate change. … One billion people have played Monopoly—but Monopoly actually doesn’t teach you anything about sustainability. This game provides a new platform for how to learn this.”
