City of San Jose to use Innovation Games for budget prioritization

On January 29th, the Mayor of San José will host the fifth annual Neighborhood Association/Youth Commission Priority Setting Session at the City of San José city hall.

A team of 30 Innovation Games trained facilitators will facilitate games based on Buy a Feature to help the city understand the preferences of community leaders regarding key budget initiatives.  This project is an opportunity to demonstrate the power of serious games to inform social policy through citizen-led in-person and online gaming.

This pro bono project is made possible by a team of 30 trained facilitators who will volunteer their time to design and facilitate the games, Avaya who will sponsor the supplies for the event (thank you Paul Dunay, Global Managing Director of Services and Social Marketing at Avaya,) and ARC for donating printer services.
