Toxic Release! simulates the challenges associated with environmental problem solving at the local level. Participants in this role-playing game simulate community residents and advocates, industry executives and government regulators as they work together to manage concerns over hazardous pollution, public health and environmental integrity. The simulation is designed to build participants' skills at conflict management, collaboration, communication, policy innovation and leadership.
