GREAT Project Presentation at the International Conference of Young Scientists 2024

From 7-10 May 2024, Jane Yau was at the International Conference of Young Scientists, held in conjunction with the Global Young Academy Annual Conference. This year’s theme was “Transformative and inclusive science for a sustainable future” and was held at the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine in Washington D. C.

Jane presented the GREAT project, which was recorded and live-streamed (the recording will be available shortly). Positive and enthusiastic feedback was received relating to how the project can align with the United Nations Climate Promise Plan to reduce global carbon emissions by 1.5 degrees by 2025.

The project is currently undertaking a number of case studies and by the end of the year, there will be lots of detailed results relating to how games can be used effectively as a communication channel between citizens and policy-makers. In this sense, it will be a great opportunity to present the results in a longer workshop-type setting at next year’s conference, in order to disseminate the results and share our methodology with interested partners working to advance other sustainable development goals.
