CATCH, the Game

Renate Postma, project leader for the Zwolle pilot in the European Interreg NSR CATCH project, is working on how neighborhood residents from two neighborhoods in Zwolle become more aware of the risks of climate change and extreme showers and heat with a serious game and how such the game should then look to ensure that residents, together with their neighbors, want to make a plan to green their neighborhood and protect it against flooding and heat stress. For the CATCH NSR project, the actual purpose of a simulation or game would be community building in the interest of a climate-robust, social and attractive neighborhood. This not only limits considerable damage costs and even prevents disruption for government and private individuals. The positive effect is a blue-green city, like a forest with a lot of space for water. Healthier, greener and more attractive.
