New game aims to protect the cultural heritage of marginalised communities against disasters
Launched by the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM), the main aim of the game is to give a voice to marginalised communities from a variety of demographic groups who are not often consulted when developing disaster risk reduction strategies.
Dr Ksenia Chmutina from our School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering devised the technology and methodology for the initiative.
She said: "The game helps us understand the role of cultural heritage in everyday life and therefore its role in capacities that people have to deal with disasters. It also keeps younger people employed – otherwise, they would leave to the urban areas and the regional economy would collapse."
