Flood Stopping

IDL is designing an AR board game, aiming to inform and educate the project’s target around flood stopping.

The project aims to train teachers in order to provide them with innovative tools to better equip students and communities through a system of communicating vessels that, starting from scientific knowledge related to flood risk and digital mapping tools, leads teachers and students to test their knowledge through an AR board game and to put them into practice through a dedicated mobile application and the Community Mapping activity.

One of the most pressing issues of our time is addressing climate change and its consequences. Its effects are impacting European residents in a variety of ways, including a significant increase in flooding. The report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last summer reported an increase in extreme rainfall, rain and river flooding in Central and Western Europe, which are set to increase if gas emissions are not reduced and the dangerous 2°C rise in global temperature is reached.
