Prime Minister Mark Rutte and then Minister of Infrastructure and Environment Melanie Schultz both played a role in a serious game set up by Tygron. In the session, an existing case in The Hague was discussed based on an urban planning simulation on the Tygron Platform. Rutte took on the role of project developer and Schultz represented the residents.
The session was conducted exactly as it should happen in the future, according to the rules of the new Environmental Act. Stakeholders sat around the table together at an early stage and, supported by an accurate simulation of the future situation, talked to each other in a well-informed manner. In this way, consensus is reached more quickly, and time and money are saved.
