About the workshop:
Gamification is about applying game elements and (digital) game design techniques to non-game problems, such as the challenges climate issues pose to business and the related social impacts. Gamification is the hot new business concept being used by the world’s leading companies (Nike, Siemens, Dell, eBay, Cisco, etc.) Games are powerful tools and can engage users on a higher level. The workshop is designed to give you a deeper insight into gamification and co-creation processes. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to use games and co-creation effectively in their field of work, and reach their target audience, engage them, and through the change in civic behaviour patterns achieve their objectives.
As a result of the workshop you will be able to design your own gamification project to attain your goals related to climate change. Less water use? Less waste? More kilometres by public transport? Less energy consumption? No matter what your goal is, it can be transformed into a game!
