In the game, the participants play the roles of the parties who have to cooperate in the real world. By limiting knowledge and resources, the participants are challenged to work together to produce the best possible outcome. While playing the game, they find out how particular scores are achieved and how the interaction between water, climate, spatial planning and also costs and construction works in actual practice.
The Climate Game is based on state-of-the-art models such as the VROM leefbaarheidsbarometer (a monitor for the quality of the living environment developed by the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment), the hydrological model (Deltares/Tygron), UNESCO-IHE heat stress models and climate scenarios from KNMI (the Royal Netherlands Meteorolical institute). In other words, the Climate Game is a serious game. The actions of the players are calculated accurately and in real time according to the abovementioned models. This makes the Climate Game a valuable tool that enables students to familiarise themselves with complex processes. In addition, the results obtained in the game are realistic.
