Talk: A Playful Approach to Solving Serious Problems - Waterkant 2020

In June of this year a virtual edition of the Waterkant festival took place, which is an event that connects startups, corporates, society, and technology. As part of this festival me (Joanneke Weerdmeester) and Owen Harris (Explore DEEP) gave a joint talk and discussed how we can use playful and immersive technology such as video games and virtual reality to improve our wellbeing. Check out the talk below (starting at approximately 5:36:47).
