In the setting of the EDLS 2022 campaign, for the fourth year in a row, the Gerència de Serveis de Biblioteques and the Office of Cooperation for Development of Barcelona Provincial Council collaborate to offer libraries from the network the possibility to programme activities linked to the EDLS goals, and thus join the initiative, in the last weeks of November. The Game of the Water is a game designed by the Association Enginyeria Sense Fronteres (ESF) in collaboration with various rural communities of Francisco d’Orellana (Ecuador). It consists of a game of teams similar to the board “game of the goose”, designed to play preferably in an open space. Thanks to the game, children will put themselves in the shoes of the story’s characters “Auka: the amazonian frog”, since each team is assigned one of them. The goal is to reach the end line, progressing each turn using a dice. For each square, teams have to solve riddles and challenges on various topics like water, climate change, and pollution. The activity is aimed at children between 7 and 12 years old (10-30 boys and girls).
