This is the Open Event organised in the framework of the International Seminar Game Design for Inclusion hosted in Cagliari by Associazione Interculturale NUR in cooperation with the partners of the Erasmus+ capacity-building project Game On: Inclusion through educational game design.
Game On brings together partners from 4 European countries with the main aim of upscaling our experiences in using game design as a tool for inclusion.
The project's goal is to develop a theoretical background and concrete educational tools for youth workers, teachers, and educators in general, to promote social inclusion and critical thinking through game design learning and educational activities in our local communities.
During the Open Event, in a mini-fair setting, the participants from the Seminar and representatives of local organisations working in education, game-based learning, youth work and game design will be invited to share their good practices in using games and game design to promote inclusion.
The Game On partners will also present the project and share the achievements and outcomes of the first half of our journey together.
The event will serve to present the project and its results also to the local community in Cagliari, as well as to promote networking opportunities among different European organisations, experts and stakeholders beyond the Game On partner consortium.
The Game Design for Inclusion international seminar is bringing together 30 participants from Italy, Lithuania, Serbia and Spain with the goal to:
- share good practices about game design for inclusion (inclusion in game design processes, designing games which purpose is to promote inclusion), and multiply inclusive game design (through training, workshops);
- support new international partnerships;
- scale-up the project's outcomes through dissemination and multiplying activities and strategies.
This project is part of the Cities of Learning collaboration by partners of Barcelona City of Learning, Cagliari Metropolitan City of Learning, Novi Sad City of Learning and Vilnius City of Learning.
Partner organisations: Associazione Interculturale NUR (Italy), BalkanIDEA Novi Sad (Serbia), Idealúdica (Spain), Nectarus (Lithuania), Nexes Interculturals de Joves per Europa (Spain) and Universitat de Barcelona (Spain).
