what will the museum of the future be like?
A new way of engaging audiences through urban events and large scale social games? Take a look at what's happening here : http://www.forwardplus50.com
Forward+50 Rio is the first urban social serious game to challenge individuals to consider the big picture on sustainable development. During the Earth Summit Rio+20, citizen-players are invited to build a virtual world from our own choices. We will work together to develop and test different approaches to understand what climate change does really involve.
Forward +50 is a game that simulates the impact of climate change on Rio de Janiero, 50 years from now.
Forward +50 allows you to move forward 50 years in just seven days: from June 15 to 21, for one week only, your task will be to shrink your environmental footprint and take a closer look at the impact of your own choices and that of your community. You will be able to test-drive and evaluate the consequences of your social and professional life on greenhouse gas emissions, energy and water consumption, heat and waste production…
Thousands of players are expected to take part and thus help influence global political action on climate change and propel us towards more sustainable lifestyles.
