Offshore Renewables Researchers meet Changing the Game

In the middle of May 2013 the student organisation INORE (the International Network on Offshore Renewable Energy, inore.org) held its 7th Annual Symposium at the Adventure Park of Pembroke Dock (Wales, UK).

It was a week-long residential experience for 60 researchers involved in wave, offshore wind and tidal energies. We had visits to the harbour and to the fjord, collaborative tasks set up by industry members, poster presentations from all attendees, inspiring sessions with keynote speakers and top researchers, and non the least many social activities.

Julia Fernández Chozas organised a Changing the Game session with Symposium participants. About 60 researchers, with many different backgrounds and coming from all over the world played The Game. Various – challenging, inspiring as well as exciting – scenarios were proposed, and then discussed in an EU Parliament atmosphere. Overall, CtG inspired everyone to think on our current and future energy systems, and the actual possibilities to make a real change.

Changing the Game from Cape to Cape

Gijs Stevers from the Netherlands got involved with CtG while staying in Denmark, and chose to bring it with him when biking from Cape to Cape covering about 22,000 km on an electric bike. Gijs has hosted many CtG-sessions on his way, talked to a lot of people and looked at several renewable energy facilities on his two-wheel-journey to the very south of Africa.

Changing the Game played in Portugal & Pictures

A group of students snd enthusiasts in Lisbon has found together to hold a seminar discussing energy systems and Europe’s future over a session of Changing the Game. Energy Crossroads Denmark supported the event by sending game materials, including Lego bricks and game cards.

In total three sessions were held between November 2011 and February 2012. Enjoy some pictures on our Flickr page!

Thet lin Thu from Singapore stayed in Denmark during the fall of 2009 and came to like Changing the Game so much that he chose to gather a group of people to develop a South East Asian version of it. The version covers seven region in South East Asia and participants are given roles and objectives they are to pursue in the game. The game was used at the AYES2012 conference which took place March 23-25.
