A workshops for doers, makers, volunteers, activists and people who are looking for new tools to change the world!

When people hear gamification, they envision games created for a business purpose. But gamification is about applying the motivational techniques that make games so engaging into the real world. Learn the basics of game design (mechanics, dynamics and plot of the gamification). Learn how to use a game for social change and create a simple gamification system for your colleagues, students and friends. Let’s solve the world’s problems through gaming!

This workshop is being facilitated by a member of the community, Kasia  –  she is a graphic designer and has a specialist interest in designing and making board-games.
