The Oil Game

Tom Harper is a young guy who is involved with Transition Norwich, and who, inspired by some of the early games that were developed for the Transition Tales work done with school students in Totnes, has developed his own versions, and made this short film.  He is happy to come and run the game in schools elsewhere too.

Brilliant! I wonder what were the most ‘out-of-the box’ ideas that these kids came up with…?

How can I contact Tom Harper and get a copy of the work book? OVESCO is working on projects to get schools fitted with renewables (PV) in Lewes and would like to use the work book at these schools.
