Who decides the fate of tropical forests? Answering this question is difficult, as it involves many actors driven by different goals and feelings like love or power. Come and play with us (serious but fun) and take the role of a farmer, the State, or a mining company, and decide the future of a tropical forest!

Come play with seriously fun games

Have you ever heard about serious games?
Serious games are engaging activities where people come together to have fun but also reflect on concerning topics such as societal or environmental aspects.

In our event we invite you to play our original board game: Nunka Niniuri. You will experience and discover together what drives the fate of tropical forest. The game involves interactions between players, solving collective challenges and emotions. Come and win the quest to shape sustainable futures for tropical forests!
