Le Grand Jeu

is a future-thinking game that allows to set a situation where different conditions are simulated and concepts emerge from doing where players are peers and all languages intermix …. and stories emerge


¨Le Grand Jeu” is the name of a game designed in May-July 2016 by an expert group in a 4 days workshop, held in Milan 10-14 July 2016. The group includes artists, engineers, design experts and activists.

The idea and the direction of the process came by to help design a situation where some narratives about the future of our society could be told, crafted and discussed in a positive way.

A tool to spin discussion about climate and energy
