WEBINAR: Water Conflict Management Through Serious Gaming

When:  May 16, 2018 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

Water Conflict Management Through Serious Gaming

Date: May 16, 2018 | 1pm ET

Speaker: W. Todd Jarvis, Director, Institute for Water and Watersheds, Oregon State University

Serious games are useful because they provide an opportunity to make friends out of enemies through casual conversation and to learn about negotiating over water. The games can be an interactive, realistic virtual environment in which players attempt to simultaneously “juggle” growing food, growing cities, sustain the environment, and make a profit. They come in many forms, ranging from role plays, board games, computer-assisted board games, and online games. And there are games that are exclusively about gaming groundwater! 

This webinar will introduce the participants to the growing portfolio of games that focus exclusively on water resources.

PDH credit available to all attendees.

Webinar recording will be available afterward. AWRA members can access all webinar recordings by logging in to their member account and following the prompts to the Webinar Archive.
