We’re excited to inform you that the jury of the inaugural 2012-13 Create UNAOC Challenge are in the final stages of review. The competition’s finalists will be announced and notified by January 18, 2013. This year, we received submissions from a diverse pool of applicants based all over the world. Thank you to all who participated.
We’d also like to take this time to announce our new partner, Fields of View. A non-profit research organization based in Bangalore, India, Fields of View’s goal is to create equal and open spaces for dialogue and enquiry where different individuals and groups can respond constructively to each other through decision making, learning and education, and participatory processes. To create such spaces, they leverage games, simulations and visualisations in the areas of urban systems, and public safety and security. Fields of View, along with the Learning Games Network and the MIT Education Arcade, will be available to provide coaching and feedback to semi-finalists as they usher their applications and games to completion.
