Transition Discovery Games
Serious Games serve to establish connections, and involvement, engaging awareness and creating emotion.They increase participants’ long-term motivation and render complex concepts accessible.
What does the Great Transition mean?
To reach the safe space where we live within the ecological ceiling and social boundaries of our planet requires a great transition. For Western countries, this means rising to the challenge of maintaining high standards of living, while drastically cutting carbon emissions. Such a challenge requires cultivating an inner transition space where we seek to create and purchase life-affirming products, answering deep ethical questions such as, does the design intended contribute to a just, fair, inclusive system? Is it ecologically wise? Is it socially thriving? Is it resilient and diverse?
Transition Discovery Games seek to bring awareness to the social and environmental challenges of the 21st century through collective intelligence. Their objective is to empower people to create and apply their own solutions toward mindful production and consumption of every day objects such as connected objects and clothes.
Working with Université Grenoble Alpes, I’ve been able to develop two serious games: My IoT and My Garment.
My IoT a discovery game
This game aims to raise awareness and initiate a change in mindsets and behaviors regarding the impacts of the globalized micro and nano technology industry in an accessible, creative and engaging way.
My Garment a discovery game
This web app is designed to raise awareness among company managers and university students about the impacts of the textile sector. Its goal is to encourage a change in behavior at every stage of the garment's life cycle.
