Workshop: Serious gaming and learning meets Natural Resources Data

Hey You, Digital Service Developer in Education! Interested in putting Environmental and other Natural Resources Data into full usage?
Finnish Partnership for Research on Natural Resources and the Environment (LYNET) is calling all serious gaming and learning players to create digital services together.
DIGILE and the Finnish Partnership for Research on Natural Resources and the Environment (LYNET) are organising a get-together that will tap into domains like environmental education ( and serious gaming, digital gaming in general (e.g. “fact based” dystopia/utopia games) and the possibilities of Open Data.
As LYNET is providing access to several data providers it is up to you to use your creativity to see what kind of opportunities it creates. This type of data is collected all around the world by governments – and as it is not as regulated as e.g. health data, it creates interesting opportunities for
providing digital services to all geographies.
