This fully interactive event will take the form of a game session facilitated by a range of academics and practitioners who use DRR games in their research, community engagement, outreach and other activities. This will be followed by a debrief through an interactive activity allowing participants to reflect on their experiences with alternative approaches to appreciating the role of disaster risk reduction through inquiry-based, active and experiential learning adopting the use of modular construction toys, board and card games, and video games, and discuss how creative use of well-known toys and games helps exploring a real-world problem and test the solution.
