PON is a concept for a game that helps highlight the important role of nature in society, economics and politics. It's a publicly funded game that is meant to be distributed for free to schoolchildren globally at the age range 10-14.

The purpose of this workshop is to develop a concept for a mobile version of the strategy game Politics of Nature aimed at 10 - 14 year old children all over the world, with a special focus on children in developing countries such as Brazil, where the game will be tested. The workshop must end with a complete description and visual material that satisfactorily describes the game's planned game design, visual expression and other elements, and can form the basis for application material for funding for the development of the game. The application is made by the Danish Cultural Institute in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
