Fields of View conducted the Rubbish! game session for the participants of LP4Y’s (Life Project 4 Youth) Micro Economic Initiative Program (MEIP) that provides professional training to young adults who are socially excluded to acquire skills for them to be employable or create their own micro businesses.
For one of their programs in Bangalore, they are looking to train young adults in developing creative games to generate awareness on solid waste management for which a game session on Rubbish! was included as a part of this course for the participants to get an immersive experience of the system dynamics of solid waste management by playing the role of a Dry Waste Collection Centre (DWCC) manager for different wards in the city of Bangalore.
The participants found the experience very interactive and interesting. Citing their feedback, some said, “We all have learnt many things about how to manage waste and how DWCC work. The Rubbish! game is so fun, we all enjoyed it a lot. For example, we learnt that if we don’t buy the garbage, the landfill is full and after we have a problem so we have to buy the garbage.”
At the end of the session, some of the participants added that “they would like to visit one of this DWCC to know how it is in reality.”
