Sustainaville is a games based learning programme that simulates a virtual community. The simulation games can be used in a lesson or can be used to anchor an Enterprise Day. The game is run on a single computer. Eight teams take on different roles within the virtual community and play 3 or 4 virtual years consisting of plan > do > review cycles.
Sustainaville can be used to:

The games are easy to deliver with inbuilt help and are supplied with pdfs of a teaching guide, worksheets and materials needed to run a successful enterprise activity.
