The encounter with experts and game designers provided an opportunity to exchange ideas and gain new perspectives for the future in the creative economy. The most convincing designs were realised under professional guidance in the follow-up phase until November 2015. The project was aimed at young Europeans from 17 to 30 years of age, on a basis of inclusion and learning from one another.
Local preparatory meetings were held in Lisbon and Munich. 10 participants from Portugal and 7 from Germany got to know each other and gained initial insights into the project.
The seven-day workshop began with some group dynamics for team building and presentations from experts on the EU and game development. Henceforth the workshop focused on the collaborative development of gaming concepts related to current issues in the EU.
The most convincing drafts were developed further under the guidance of professionals. Following the workshop the participants were encouraged to test and implement their game ideas. Game Designers Andrea Wöhr and Filipa Cunha helped them to produce prototypes for the final presentation.

"My ‘Faites vos jEUx’ adventure began with a FB posting on the platform #medialepfade. I applied with a covering letter in which I described why I was interested in this unconventional Gamelab and shortly thereafter got the good news that I was in."
The project Faites vos jEUx is an initiative of the Goethe-Institut e.V., realized in cooperation with its partners, the Munich-based JFF – Institute for Media Education as well as ARISCO – Organization to Promote Health and Social Integration and Associação Mais cidadania in Portugal with support of the Youth in Action Programme by the European Commission.
