Name, first nameBenjamin LemckeYear of birth1989UniversityZHDKField of Interest / research fieldInteraction / Game / Media DesignTitle of projectOpinionGamesAbstractThe conventional political participation of youngsters and young adults is sinking. This is not necessarily due to a lack of political concern but much more due to a lack of political education and lack of realization for the usefulness of political participation.

In my master thesis I am designing and developing smartphone games with which young adults can inform themselves impartially about future voting issues. They should form their own opinion about an issue and be encouraged to get out and vote.

I don‘t only want to discuss the theoretical basics, but generate methods for quick development of such “OpinionGames.” I‘ll also seek partnership with newspaper publishers and public political opinion-makers.
