Systems & Games: A Collaboration with the International Red Cross

I'm looking forward to working with my fellow Parsons MFADT (Design & Technology) classmates in partnership with the International Red Cross to develop a "non-digital" disaster and flood preparedness solution for the Zambezi River Basin Initiative. We will be focusing our efforts on a region of Namibia that experiences frequent flooding. Our challenge is to develop a lightweight, portable and engaging "game" system that will help the villagers prepare for future floods. The challenge for us will be to fully understand the region, the culture and the people while developing a meaningful gaming experience that can be deployed in a region with limited access to the basic necessities that so many of us take for granted.
