About the course

By approaching life from a game design perspective, you can prepare for and implement concrete steps towards a soulful and sustainable life and become more "future proof". Crafting one's way through life towards meaning and joy benefits from systems thinking, actionable idea generation, creative problem solving and the cycle of prototyping solutions, testing them and iterating on the result. That's what this course builds upon.


Using game design strategies can help in creating prototypes that facilitate decision making and navigating - one step and change at the time - towards one's own True North. The skill set learned in this course is invaluable across disciplines and jobs and will become ever more important as careers that last a lifetime have already become the exception, and the call for sustainability and acting and being in the world with personal integrity is key.
