5 July: Open Game Food and Nexus Challenge

Come play the Stress Nexus Challenge and Food Challenge with us!

Stress Nexus
How do you handle the pressure on scarce resources and energy?

The population of the world is growing. On average, people live longer. This is causing increased pressure on available resources. Water is becoming a scarce commodity in many locations across the globe. There is not enough space on earth to feed the whole world if the food demand keeps rising. There is also an increasing pressure on energy, because traditional sources of energy are depleting and green energy is not yet optimally usable or fully supported.

How would you balance the nexus of water, food and energy? Have you always wanted to know what it feels like to step into the shoes of those who make the decisions on water, food and energy for the whole planet?  

Food Challenge

How do you handle the trade-off between increased food consumption vs. sustainable food production?

This challenge puts you in the shoes of a key decision maker and deals with the question of how we can sustainably feed a growing world population. On average, people live longer. This is causing increased pressure on available resources. How do we feed ourselves in a sustainable way? During the challenge you will face the food system related issues and dilemmas that current world leaders are all too familiar with.

How would you balance the need for increased food production with the urgency to preserve our planet? Should you invest in intensive or organic farms? Would you play local or head to the global market? Can we prevent ourselves from disasters?

When: Thursday 5th of July 15:30-18:30
Where: Spring House // De Ruijterkade 128 // 1011 AC // Amsterdam
Contribution: €15,- per person for drinks

During this open game we will tackle the dilemmas that shape the future of energy, water and food. We play a world where we can experiment with innovative and collaborative approaches to make our world as resilient as possible. In that way, we learn to understand these systems and our role within them. It leaves you an improved understanding of how a sustainable future could materialise.

This open game session is a collaboration between Perspectivity and Spring House and combines Perspectivity’s Food Challenge and Stress Nexus! Challenge & the game ‘Terra Nova’ of the Publieke Versnellers.
