Transformative Play: bringing games to Doughnut Economics

Introducing and exploring the power of games and play in helping groups navigate complex conversations

Are you interested in social dynamics and the power of games and play in helping groups navigate complex conversations?


DEAL is collaborating with Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre (The Climate Centre) to offer the DEAL community an experience of the world of serious games.


In the event we will play some games together online (learning by doing!), show and explore how the games can be used and adapted to your own context (whether that be in person or online), and hear some stories of how games have been applied in the context of The Climate Centre’s humanitarian work, from rural Zambia to the White House and from the Vatican to NASA.

How to register


Please fill out this registration form and we'll send you the zoom link for the event.



Who the event is for


This event is for people who are either familiar with the ideas and tools of Doughnut Economics or those who are already applying them in any context, whether in your community, civil society organisation, public institution, business, school or university.


The event is particularly for people who are interested in exploring the potential of games to open up possibilities and overcome barriers when exploring transformational ideas like Doughnut Economics with others.



What you’ll get from the event


Experience and learn about some practical games that you can apply in your own context (be it in your community, civil society organisation, public institution, business, school or university).

 

Understand how serious play can help you to introduce, explore and apply the ideas and tools of Doughnut Economics, and overcome barriers to adoption and application, by providing participants opportunities to turn their game-experience into insights and new pathways of possibility.

 

Hear stories of how games have been applied in the context of humanitarian work, from rural Zambia to the White House and from the Vatican to NASA.
