We live in a moment of declining civic engagement and flourishing participatory culture. The question this session will explore is: How might games better enable individuals to connect with - and contribute to - the social movements they care about? Participants will learn how we’re using game design thinking with activists in Wisconsin to co-design a new civic engagement game. We’ll conclude by collectively brainstorming ideas that leverage game design thinking to empower grassroots organizing.
