Games for Cities Conference & Doctoral Consortium

20 April 2017 - 21 April 2017

How can games improve the process of urban planning? That’s the central question at the upcoming Games for Cities International Conference, taking place in Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam, April 20-21 2017.
At the conference, game designers, researchers, architects, planners and policymakers explore how games can be used as a method for generating more engaged citizens and more inclusive cities. Gaming offers a real alternative to standard forms of civic engagement in the 21st century, bringing a range of stakeholders together and enabling collaborative decision-making and conflict
resolution to emerge from this.
Keynotes include: Paolo Pedercini of Molleindustria, Eric Gordon from Emerson’s Engagement Lab, Urban Think Tank’s Alfredo Brillembourg, Felix Madrazo from Inter.National.Design, and Play the City’s Ekim Tan. 10 leading city-games will also be available for play at the conference.
