Gaming for uncertainty

A Climate-KIC ideation project

Gaming for uncertainty is an ideation project at Lund University financed by Climate-KIC with the aim to develop an entertaining game that motivates people to want to learn more about what it means to express uncertainty and make decisions. Project duration October–December 2017.

The game explains the benefits of expressing uncertainty when making predictions and possible ways to make decisions under uncertainty. The game includes prediction and decision problems from daily life that players can relate to, and a fictional game scenario that involves decision making under climate uncertainty, where there is a need to consider the balance between social, economic, and environmental impacts.
