DIVERSITY DECK® Hydrosphere

  • £9.99


Hydrosphere

The hydrosphere concerns water on Earth in all of its forms. Water is an invaluable and scarce resource, yet by many it fails to be recognised as such. Our hydrosphere deck tackles important topics that emphasise the importance of water, the way in which our water cycle functions and the consequences of abusing this cycle.

About our Decks

Our DIVERSITY DECKS® sow the seeds of sustainability whilst sparking curiosity. For those eager to learn more, each card has its own unique factsheet on our website, providing individuals with the opportunity to delve deeper into the science of sustainability!

DIVERSITY DECK® is a collection of 16 card decks, covering different scientific topics, from good bacteria to the telluric planets, from hydrosphere to polar animals. Each deck centres around sustainability and aims to sensitise individuals to its importance, whilst also providing valuable insights into what we can do both collectively and individually, to make a real difference, now and in the future.

Many classic card games like Crazy Eights or Black Jack can be played with each DIVERSITY DECK®. Each game varies in difficulty, so there really is a game for everyone! Our two special cards, Calamity and Parry, add even more fun and strategic problem solving to the games.
