Gaming the Food System: IFSTAL Game Jam
Come and learn about gaming-as-research-method!

Games – whether board based, role-playing, adventurous or computer based – are increasingly being used as a way to examine real-world issues. Given the complexity, multiple roles and possibilities in food systems, games seem an important avenue to explore.

We’ll work together to develop new games on a food system theme and explore how this can help us explore, research and educate around food systems.
