Game based empowerment

gameWise combines socially committed games with digital tools to support youngsters in their personal development towards active and self-conscious citizens.

The gameWise-way

GameWise focuses on game based empowerment to help young people grow intoactive, self-conscious and digital citizens in a fast changing society. Together with youngsters we develop long-term learning experiences. This results in Serious Urban Games®, interactive digital city games that establish an open dialogue on social issues. Involving youngsters in the co-creation process allows us to connect with their social environment and at the same time increases their autonomous motivation.
