Lego Serious Play workshop at European Space Agency event

ENoLL teamed up with Transilvania Living Lab at the Phi week event in Rome, organized by the European space agency. The event ran from 12th to 16th November. In this collaborative workshop we explored the potentials of Earth Observation data and other space technologies in better planning the future of our cities. Through Lego serious play, 3D models were built of dystopian cities – which were then transformed to future utopian cities, tapping in to the great amount knowledge of our expert participants!
