  • A Multitude of Voices Game Session at Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften June 22, 2024: The Resource Economics Group hosted an engaging and enjoyable session at the "Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften", featuring the game "A Multitude of Voices." Held at the Humboldt Forum, this game was developed as part of the Participatory Game Design study project within the Integrated Natural Resource Management (INRM) program. The game aims to raise awareness about the complexity of climate change-related issues and the necessity for interdisciplinary approaches. Participants, including experts, scientists, and students, found the session interactive and informative. The game involves balancing personal targets for each role within the city with collective strategies to protect the city against the risk of flash floods. It also highlighted the crucial role of democracy in addressing climate challenges, providing valuable insights and inspiration for further exploration of collaborative solutions. 01/07/2024
