Citoyens mitoyens (“Citizens denizens”) is a serious online game destined for students aged 14 to 18 and initially created for western Switzerland.
The game is managed by Digital Kingdom, a company operating in new media. Its interface was developed by a team from HEAD – Genève, Geneva School of Art and Design (HES-SO). The content of the game is based on an original survey carried out by Rroma Foundation on Rroma people integrated in Switzerland and on research conducted by the Haute Ecole de Travail Social et de la Santé – EESP Lausanne (HES-SO). The game will come with an educational kit, developing content on Rroma people and other minorities in Switzerland.
