The debate will be followed by the Geospatial Gaming City & Streets Masterclass, which will inspire councils and other stakeholders to plan pro-actively harness community wellbeing and economic development opportunities from geospatial gaming and, in turn minimise risks for local businesses and communities.

By participating in the masterclass, you will learn to identify key opportunities to mobilise council infrastructure and community action whenever, and wherever, a geospatial game and its enthusiastic followers inundate the streets of your city!

Zac Fitz-Walter (EatMorePixels.com.au) and Stephen Yarwood will take us through a thought-provoking session with ideas about the roles of planning, economic development, health and community development. Those who use, plan, develop and manage urban environments will pick over the issues and ethics providing a few laughs on the way in this light-hearted format.
