POLLINOPOLY

Pollinopoly re-imagines Monopoly as a co-operative game which re-assesses ideas around aesthetic and ecolgical values Instead of 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 are arguably valued least in terms of attractiveness to humans, are the most valuable 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 as healthy as possible for as many species as possible.

The game is the final output of interviews with biologist, ecologists and land managers and workshop based research into the public's attitude towards beauty vs ecolgical health. This project is still being developed and Madeleine is currently working towards making it relevant for specific stakeholders.
