A new game has a serious message regarding the health of the Chesapeake Bay.
The Bay Game is an interactive exercise that simulates the conditions of the bay's watershed. Players take the roles of people who live around the bay and make their livelihoods from the resources of the bay, such as watermen, farmers and developers, as well as policymakers.
The game will be introduced in a big way April 8 when 163 university of Virginia students play it on the Charlottesville campus.
U.Va. is partnering with Azure Worldwide to showcase the new approach to engaging people in the environment and, in this instance, the troubled Chesapeake Bay. Azure was co-founded by Philippe Cousteau.
