ClimateCafe meets GameDevCafé – Play the City 26th October 2022

How can we use games to increase citizen involvement, make informed decisions about climate adaptation and give everyone a voice? For the last decade, game developers, geographers and governments have created games to involve everyone in co-design session of our actual living spaces.

Since 2010, 4000+ participants have joined 42 city games through a total of 185 Play the City game sessions we reflect on those sessions. What can be learned? How can we involve more citizens (especially the ones not reached yet) and which cities could be part of this playification of collaborative decision making?

Experts in the field of play and citygames will discuss the merits of design and implementation of these studies. Café Fokus will host us, like any other GameDevCafés and, in an informal setting. Grab a stool, order a drink, introduce yourself to the person next to you and enjoy a friendly night out.

Game Dev Cafe is organised by Dutch Games AssociationMenno Deen and Nelen & Schuurmans and
