A 6 player board game where each player assumes the role of a stakeholder and works collaboratively to solve problems affecting the Mithi river.
People of Mithi is a stakeholder game created to bring forward to children through play how the problem of the Mithi River is a wicked problem and why it has been so difficult to solve.
The boardgame aims towards collective winning or losing by letting each player take decisions that affect them individually as well the as river on the board which they have to clean.
