7 European workshops
During the project, 7 European workshops have been organised by the partners in France, Portugal and Italy. For each workshop, a dozen of European participants with various backgrounds (young Europeans, ONG members, students, artists and team members) gathered for an immersive week in the game and integrity worlds.
These workshops aimed to test each of the serious games with future users and to train participants to implement the games in their own activities. This was the opportunity to talk about improvements but also to have a real European debate on the topics explored and to raise awareness about various integrity, corruption and fraud issues. Some creative and game design workshops were also offered. Through this playful experience, the participants learned about integrity topics, European burning issues, game design, game mastering and serious gaming.
