The U.Va. Bay Game, an interactive simulation based on the Chesapeake Watershed, will be featured at the second annual SXSW Eco conference October 3-5 in Austin, Texas. The three-day conference will address the need for a collaborative approach to solving the challenges facing the environment, the economy and civil society.
As an alternative to a traditional conference panel, the U.Va. Bay Game will be presented as an interactive session, in which attendees can sign up to participate in a simulation. CNN Correspondent and SXSW Eco alum Philippe Cousteau, head of Azure Worldwide, will lead two simulations of the interactive Bay Game, providing a unique platform for the project to attract more attention and resources.
