Pollinopoly re-imagines Monopoly as a co-operative game which re-assesses ideas around value and non-human nature. Instead of purely urban locations, the game features a succession of familiar green landscapes. Each square has an initial value attached to it, but in this case it is an ecological value as opposed to a monetary one. Some of the squares which arguably are valued most highly in terms of attractiveness to humans, are the poorest in terms of their ecological rating.
These ratings are presented as a ‘trip advisor’ style star system. The idea of the game is to work together improve the ratings in order to make the board as habitable and healthy as possible for as many species as possible.
This project is still being developed and Madeleine is currently working towards making it relevant for speicfic stake holders such as land managers.
