Virtual Cities is a game about circular economy played by a group of 3-5 players, where the goal is to make your world as circular as possible by following 7 principles about circular economy.
Each player has a city that spends and generates resources both natural and man-made, in a linear fashion. The goal is to combine different strategies and technology to make their city more circular, and contribute the most to the global circularity, without knowing exactly what will happen, making choices on the go.
Virtual Cities aims to educate players on circular economy (CE) principles in cities, and to understand how CE principles can be used as strategies to increase circularity, but also show the barriers and complexity of carrying out these strategies.
