Banding Together through Games

@ TOKYO GAME SHOW 2014 ON SEP 18, 2014

Roger Hicks talks about his games and how his life has inspired his games to come to life. His love of music and getting lost, inspired and encouraged him to keep working on developing games, and meeting new people along the way.

If you want people to do the right thing, make it easy

@ VOL 34 ON JAN 30, 2018

The complexities of human behaviour and how we adapt to new routines fascinate Rodrigo Morais Prezia Paiva. New routines can come from completely new behaviours or changing ones that we have engrained. Nudging is a new approach where instead of building complex solutions to manage behaviours, a light touch can be used.

Do you feel at home in Maastricht?

@ VOL 36 ON JUN 19, 2018

These are some of the questions that Julia Reinold tackles in her PhD research at Maastricht University. She also is a true child of this region herself: Julia grew up in the German part of the Euroregion, studied at Maastricht University and is now working there as a researcher.

I Can Do That (and So Can You!)

@ VOL 20 ON MAY 15, 2019

In 'I Can Do That (and so can you!)', Anya Marco Harris, uses her 400 second PechaKucha for great impact. Anya draws on tales from her own life experience to convince the audience that if you have a dream idea floating around in your mind, stop in floating around in the abyss and make it a reality.

As Anya eloquently puts it, if she can achieve being a coffee queen, burlesque dancer, blogger, obtain a MA in cultural cosmology specialising in archeoastronomy and discover how the Neolithic chose to place the stones in Avebury Stone Circle (and that is just her life to date) - then so can YOU!
