Scenario Exploration System Overview

Scenario Exploration System Overview

Year after year, the Scenario Exploration System (SES) - a serious gaming tool originally developed by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission - is proving its potential in leading and inspiring the decisions of the ABIS academic and corporate communities and beyond in the field of sustainability.

For this reason, ABIS has released a 2023 SES Overview Report, where it is possible to learn about its features, the opportunities that it brings, previous successful experiences, and what is the role of ABIS in facilitating the use of the tool.

The SES was developed to facilitate the application of foresight in practice, helping participants to engage in systemic thinking with a long-term perspective and to explore alternative futures on specific issues in less than 3 hours. Through an interactive and participatory process, the game enables participants to acquire and share knowledge on sustainable development and explore the interests, motivations and strategies of different societal actors.

The use of the tool also aligns with the trend of gamified learning and strategic interventions, which are showing their effectiveness in developing skills and know-how needed to stay relevant on the market in a much more engaging, impactful and effective way.

Having developed its own SES version, ABIS offers to interested parties the opportunity to co-design workshops and use the SES as part of teaching modules, strategic discussions and relevant events.
