Can Games make a better world?
Teams in 15 African countries will use a gaming app to create future scenarios for their cities.
The future of our world is already being decided today in the big cities. An example of this is the Sub-Saharan Africa. Approximately 18 new megacities are expected to develop here by 2025. But how can access to medical care, water, electricity and education be achieved over a wide area? How do we regulate traffic and housing and how do we manage the fair distribution of clean air and green spaces?
With Enter Africa, the Goethe-Institut is imparting knowledge about analogue and digital game development in order to actively think ahead and plan transformation processes. Young teams of architects, urban planners, engineers, IT experts and professionals in the culture sector will develop ideas for their city in big 15 African cities. The various ideas will eventually lead to a transnational digital game about the future scenarios in big African cities.
Enter Africa will be presented in August 2019 at Gamescom in Cologne, the largest European games fair.
The Enter Africa Lagos Workshop will take place in June 25-28, 2018.
