1E: Visualization and gaming – making adaptation real 

How can interactive applications such as climate visualization and serious gaming support the communication of complex challenges and opportunities in climate adaptation?

08.30 - 11.45 Wednesday October 24th 

Location: Vingen 1-2

How can gaming, roleplay and citizen sensing increase the understanding of climate adaptation and create engagement with different stakeholder groups? What are the actual outcomes from the application of such methodologies in practice – this session aims for an exchange of experiences and critical reflection between researchers and practitioners.
