We use gaming as a problem-solving method, bringing top-down decision makers together with bottom-up stakeholders. In the accessible environment of games, free from professional jargon, players engage with a problem and with each other, facilitating collaborative outcomes.
We believe that gaming offers a real alternative to standard formats of civic engagement in the 21st century. Our method has been acknowledged internationally and has been implemented for large-scale projects in Amsterdam, Istanbul, Brussels, Shenzhen, Dublin, Prague, and Cape Town. In this article we described our services in detail.
