Save the date - Wednesday 4 October 2017
The Dome, Open State Venue, Victoria Square
This event will let you explore and debate the growing and – at times – unpredictable world of geospatial gaming in a light-hearted format from the perspective of the challenges and opportunities it can bring. Pick over the issues and ethics with others who use, plan, develop and manage urban environments. Laughs guaranteed!
We are pleased to confirm the following debaters, Michael McKeown, Director of Jensen Plus; Stephen Yarwood, former Adelaide Lord Mayor and Urban Futurist @city2050, Paul Kitching, from Fuller; Zac Fitz-Walter, Gamification Geek and Co Founder of Eat More Pixels and Rebekha Sharkie MP, Federal Member for Mayo.
The debate will be followed by the Geospatial Gaming City & Streets Masterclass, which will inspire councils and other stakeholders to plan pro-actively harness community wellbeing and economic development opportunities from geospatial gaming and, in turn minimise risks for local businesses and communities.
By participating in the masterclass, you will learn to identify key opportunities to mobilise council infrastructure and community action whenever, and wherever, a geospatial game and its enthusiastic followers inundate the streets of your city!
Zac Fitz-Walter (EatMorePixels.com.au) and Stephen Yarwood will take us through a thought-provoking session with ideas about the roles of planning, economic development, health and community development. Those who use, plan, develop and manage urban environments will pick over the issues and ethics providing a few laughs on the way in this light-hearted format.
A full program will be available on 14 September 2017.
