Anticipate to a better management

The creation of a role playing game on invasive species and management against Acacia mangium allows problematic situations to be reproduced with a group of actors and to explore their resolution.

Participants are in a virtual decision-making situation, in a controlled and risk-free environment, allowing them to explore development scenarios, test solutions or new modes of interaction.

For this, the company Lisode was selected to create the game and manage the animation of several meetings with the actors. This includes fieldwork to mobilize stakeholders and collect data, analysis and shaping, then the delivery of a finalized game with its user guide.

This game is necessary to allow the modification of the practices of the various actors about invasive alien plant species.
