Resource Description

S.E.E. The Links!(Resource ID: 70)

S.E.E. the links is a game involving dice that engages participants in the linkages between the three core pillars of sustainability; society – economy – and environment. The game involves 3 dice; each assigned a pillar and each number an aspect of that pillar. When the dice are rolled the group must come up with a story or statement that links the three aspects together – hence see the links.

Participants are divided into small groups and provided with 3 dice (preferably different colours), each one representing a different core pillar of sustainable development; society – economy – environment. Each number on the dice is then designated an aspect of that pillar.





1. Water resources

1. Poverty reduction

1. Industry

2. Renewable energy 

2. Security

2. Unemployment

3. Air pollution

3. Human rights

3. Local economy

4. Waste

4. Democracy

4. Indebtedness

5. Land use

5. Culture

5. Agricultural subsidies

6. Wood clearing

6. Health

6. Organic food


The group then rolls the dice together and notes down the aspects corresponding with the numbers on the dice. Then participants must come up with a story or statement that links all three aspects together in the context of sustainable development.

An example could be: *Waste *Health *Local Economy

“Communities health and physical environment can be negatively affected by the waste they produce.. However, by assessing its value waste can be turned into a resource. For example, organic waste can be recycled as fertiliser or converted into energy (biomass). Alternatively, certain waste products can be sold to a nearby enterprise that can make use of the resource. All of these initiatives would have a positive effect on the health of the community and the environment, while simultaneously boosting the local economy and making it more independent and resilient to external factors.”

Groups should take between 10 – 15 minutes to come up with their link, and then present their story to the whole group.

With available time this activity can be repeated as often as necessary.
