What would you do if you were the Mayor of your city?
That's the question being asked in São Paulo, Brazil! Brazilians are able to consider this question thanks to the new video game Cidade em Jogo (Cities in play) that allows residents to consider how they would handle the role. Conservation, education, mobility - all the major issues are discussed in the video game prompting young Brazilians to get a better sense of the duties of city managers. Policy goals and fiscal realities all come into play according to Meeting of the Minds. The city of São Paulo has decided to use this as an educational tool in the classroom ands secondary schools around the state, aiming to bring these issues to light in an engaging format.
If you were to ask a teen what they would do as Mayor for a day, you're more than likely going to get a shoulder shrug. It's a vague question that inquires about a lot of responsibilities that residents don't likely know about. Cidade em Jogo gives users a believable scenario in which real life topics are waiting for their decision making. The game was released in August and while it was originally given to young Brazilians, the software has been featured in various events, seminars and training sessions across Brazil and even in Washington D.C.!
The game promotes a higher quality of leadership at all levels of government as well as civic education of how mayors tackle policy changes. Cities in Play is just one way that technology is assisting city managers and residents across the nation.
