Pablo Suarez, Associate Director for Research and Innovation, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate CentreTrack 1 GAME/INSTRUCTION DESIGN
How can we harness the power of digital tools to enrich the human experience of our life online? Can your Zoom meetings and conferences be re-imagined to enhance engagement, candor, and creativity? The simple answer: YES, through serious play.
Instead of accepting that videoconferences are inferior to face-to-face meetings, the Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre has turned constraints into opportunities for reinventing interaction, so that fun is FUNctional to our work on risks.
Join this innovative session to play “NewsMaker,” “Timelines,” “Face It!” or “Decisions for the Season.” Building on our case studies with the World Bank, the BMW Foundation and other partners, you will learn how our simple online activities can help your team to radically improve events at-a-distance, promoting a low-carbon, low-budget, high-energy way to stimulate candid insights and genuine appetite for fruitful interaction.
Participants will experience and enjoy several new games that can help their work in non-profit sector, government, education, corporate, health and beyond. They will learn about a range of serious-yet-fun approaches that enrich virtual convenings. The online tools we will share are available for free to humanitarian non-profit organizations.
