A favourite with adults and children alike, the Eco-challenge is a fast-paced game that involves teamwork, tactics and determination!
Two teams of players play a cross between tag and human chess. Every player has a specific character role. The key to winning is to ensure that these roles are fulfilled.
From sacrificing yourself for the sake of another to making a heroic dash down the field to free your captured team, this activity highlights the need for individual roles within a team. Eco-challenge is excellent for teaching a variety of social issues such as contribution to society and how we regard others.
