Lithosphere

Concerning the Earth’s crust, its rivers, lakes, sea beds, rocks and minerals, the lithosphere is fundamental to understanding how the Earth’s surface functions and what exactly it is composed of. This topic encompasses physical geography, earth sciences, geology and much more, giving the individual a deeper understanding of our planet and the importance of maintaining it sustainably. Topics include the Earth’s formation and composition, tectonic plates, the carbon cycle, land conservation amongst others.

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.
