Over the last weekend, we have conducted a couple students and teachers workshop in Nairobi with Shree Cutchi Leva Petal School and Sunshine Secondary School which are organised by WaterCap, a network of Cap-Net UNDP. We had a very good time sharing the concept of Aqua Republica and demonstrating how serious games can help promote more interactive learning. More activities are planned in Nairobi in the near future so stay tuned!

28. August 2015 | Stockholm World Water Week – Serious Play

Many of the sessions in this year’s Stockholm World Water Week have highlighted the upcoming Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how various organisations can help achieve those goals.

Our session, “Serious Play – Virtual World for Water Education” focused on using ICT to educate about an ecosystem approach to water resources management and highlights how digital serious games can be an additional tool to help educate, build capacity as well as to enable communication between the many users of water.

We had a very lively and interactive session and the discussions and feedback we had confirms that we are heading towards the right direction of innovating and disrupting water education. We look forward to more partnerships and hope to see the increased use of innovative approaches in this sphere!

DHI-WASY together with DWA (German Association for Water, Wastewater and Waste) organised a competition with Aqua Republica at the recent WASSER Berlin International Congress and it was a great success! Participants had the chance to compete in managing their own catchment between international students groups, trying with different strategies to solve problems in water balance in the game. We would like to thank all those involved in making this event possible.
