Progress in sustainable development does not only rely on more and better systems knowledge, but additionally requires scientific and societal investment in transformative social learning processes.
Games and gamification are becoming a prominent tool to create tangible learning experiences for complex systems dynamics. The potential of games for students – so-called change agents – to actively engage in sustainability debates and eventually spur engagement for transformation is increasingly being discussed.
Against this backdrop, CDE is organizing a one-day event “Game changers for change agents? Gamification as a pathway to transformation knowledge”. The course offers a learning space to reflect on games, their contribution to transformative learning and as pathways to sustainability transformation. By way of combining expert inputs and actually diving into a gaming experience, we will discuss potentials and challenges of games as an approach to translating complex scientific results into an intelligible format of actionable transformation knowledge.
Please note that parts of the programme are offered in a hybrid format to allow both, online and physical participation.
It is possible to participate only in selected sessions of the event.
To manage online or physical participation effectively, we kindly ask for your registration for the event or selected sessions.
