Earth's Spheres

Developed in the 1980s by NASA, Earth System Science underlines that the Earth is a dynamic entity in constant evolution, kept in balance by its 7 spheres; hydrosphere, cryosphere, biosphere, magnetosphere, lithosphere, atmosphere and technosphere. Although very different in nature, the Earth’s spheres are highly interconnected and dependent on each other. Without this balance the Earth would no longer be able to sustain life.

Our Earth’s Spheres deck aims to help individuals understand the way in which our planet functions, highlighting the importance of each individual sphere in maintaining life on Earth.

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.
