RESCUE THE DIRECTOR
AND HIS FACTORY
OBJECTIVES OF THE ESCAPE GAME:
• Social entrepreneurship
• Sustainable Development
• Circular economy
• Social and Solidarity Economy => reuse/recycle/upcycle
• Waste management
Simon is the head of a very fruitful company called Spring 2000.
But in the last few years the economy has changed, and the factory has had to close, and the staff has been laid off.
Simon had very few opportunities and to survive, he converted Spring 2000 into a storage space. To make some easy money he made a deal with supermarkets, and farmers who get rid of their stocks and unsold goods, mainly food, fruits, and vegetables…
Unfortunately, Simon got overtaken, he did not have enough manpower or space and so everything is dumped anyhow.
In the long run, these mountains of waste have become a real nuisance for the environment and the people living nearby. There is a nauseating smell, the inhabitants have migraines and there are more and more green algae in the nearby rivers.
The inhabitants have already made several requests for the storage plant to be cleaned or converted into something useful, but nothing has changed. Today they have had enough and have decided to come and occupy the plant. Events got a little out of hand and they took the director hostage.
Ultimate mission: To deliver Simon, the company’s owner by presenting possible models to make a healthy transition towards a viable, sustainable, and responsible model in the long term.
