KEEP COOL ONLINE GAME: Call for web-development company



Call for web-development company: Interface Development and Back-end Integration of online game on climate change

      I.  General Information

EcoVisio is announcing the call for a web-development company to update, design and develop the online version of the board game on Climate Change, which is called “Keep Cool”. 

In a game of KEEP COOL, three to six players represent groups of countries such as Europe, OPEC, or the developing countries. For one to two hours they can choose between “black” and “green” growth, but also adapt to inevitable climate impacts like droughts or floods. The strength of these increases when the world temperature rises. Additionally, lobby groups like the oil industry or environmental groups have to be taken into account. The winner is the player who most efficiently reconciles climate protection with lobby interests. If some players are too ruthless, everybody loses.

The Public Association „EcoVisio” (AO “EcoVisio”) is a youth-led grassroots NGO from Moldova working in the field of environment, climate change, social entrepreneurship and civic engagement. “EcoVisio” was registered with the Ministry of Justice of Moldova in 2013.
