The Oil Game: a free pdf workbook

A while ago I posted a film here about Tom Harper’s ‘The Oil Game’, a programme of teaching young people about peak oil that he has been doing in schools in the south east of England.  Tom has now finished a workbook for people who want to run this programme elsewhere, containing the games and activities that he developed.  You can download it here.  It was interesting to read on Energy Bulletin today about a cartoon book called Luz which uses cartoons to introduce ideas around peak oil to a younger audience.  More of these kind of resources seem to be emerging all the time.  Tom adds “I hope as many people download it as watched the short film!”  Thanks to Tom for letting me post this here.

I think this is a really excellent game and I’m going to try and get the buildings and energy guys to use it in a local school.
