ISET-International has developed a workshop titled “Using Games to Demystify Complexity”. Through games, we present otherwise complex and abstract concepts in a memorable and accessible way to engage stakeholders around issues relating to urban systems, climate change, and resilience. Topics include:
the importance of social networks, and how they contribute to the resilience of an urban system;
how social and legal institutions and/or norms can dramatically enable or constrain social behavior, or provide the catalyst for innovation and adaptive strategies;
nine resilience characteristics to look for in systems, agents, and institutions;
core urban services as a foundational component to building urban climate resilience; and
working with uncertainty.
This workshop is designed to
