Welcome to Urland, a beautiful country that has recently discovered a large shale gas deposit that could be used to diversify and secure its energy supplies while also providing much needed employment to the local people! A recent application made by Drilling & Co to exploit this resource looks like a promising opportunity and they have already made a risk assessment. But is this enough evidence to base a decision on? That’s up to you to decide!
This simulation game will allow you to explore policymaking concepts, practice science-advisory skills, relate to stakeholders on the science-policy interface, and see multiple perspectives. During the simulation, you will be given a character to play who has specific aims and motivations that are either driven by their own personal values or their professional position. This will be followed by a reflection on real-life policymaking and how the session’s key take home message can be applied when dealing with science advisory processes.
