Two years after the start of the discussion with stakeholders, the IRENES project is drawing to a close and the IUAV University of Venice, in collaboration with Veneto Innovazione, is organising an afternoon to present the results of the first phase of the project and to launch the serious game "RE-MIX: planning to balance renewable energy". Specifically, the seminar will take place in presence on 6 June in Venice at the IUAV premises of Santa Marta, Ex Cotonificio in room I, and will last from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
In the first part of the seminar, the results of the mapping of possible conflicts between the production of renewables and other ecosystem services carried out by the 5 regions participating in the project will be presented. The results for the UK (East Anglia region), Germany (Lower Saxony region), Estonia, Romania and Italy (Veneto region) will then be presented in a short overview. In addition to the overview of results, a brief analysis of similarities, differences, pros and cons between the cases will also be presented.
In the second part of the seminar, the serious game "RE-MIX" will be launched: a board game for stakeholder involvement and participation, aimed at disseminating and sharing pillar concepts of the world of renewables, ecosystem services and possible conflicts between energy production and natural capital. The game will be launched through a simulation, so participants will be invited to be players. It is a collaborative game in which, through simple rules and the help of the moderator, players compete to build a landscape that allows a balance between energy production from renewable sources and the satisfaction of their needs (food production, tourism, ...). The game was designed specifically for the IRENES project, but can be applied to various contexts of decision-making, capacity building and awareness raising on the topics of renewables and spatial and non-spatial planning on a regional scale.
The seminar will also be attended by project partners from the other participating countries.
