Serious game

The energy price development will produce a considerable pressure in different policy fields. The reactions of decision-makers of local, regional and federal levels are mapped with a socio-political science experiment in which selected participants are confronted with the results of the modelled trends presented as a future scenario. In a series of moderated sessions the decision-makers will discuss options and develop responses (strategies) to the scenarios. The municipal representatives formulate additionally demands on the federal and state governments.

At the municipal level two groups defined by different representatives of regional types from political and administrative area were formed:

  • a Northwest and
  • Northeast Corridor.

The latter forms the spatial focus area of the project: an axis including Hamburg, southern Schleswig-Holstein and the northwest of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
