Play the City
Bringing together stakeholders, talking and visualising consequences of decisions can help to solve problems and come to a consensus. This process can help you to identify problems, come up with new ideas, and to avoid conflict later in the project. The method? Serious gaming!
Serious games simulate the reality (either online or using a gaming board), to help decision makers and stakeholders to solve a problem, or train and educate users.
Watch the video to see how Ekim Tan's serious game 'Play the city' has helped city planners all over the world, and how she thinks that serious gaming is a money-saver.
