Currently, the residents of Point neighborhood are raising their individual homes to deal with the increasing flood patterns. This individual small scale decisions will not be enough to protect them from the future projected sea level rise.Initially inspired by the Polder system, a successful democratic decision making scheme implemented in the Netherlands that involves various citizens, designers and government policy makers to drive social, economic and community decisions and by the ‘serious’ game, an educational tool used to explain complex topics in a small amount of time, ‘THE game’ was designed.
