WAG and its family

WAG is a free and open platform and toolbox for participatory water management games development.
The WAG platform offers different tools for different levels of use

Ready-to-use introductory Games

  • Ini-WAG is a simple abstract game for a general audience. It allows to explore general aspects of water usages and sharing without getting into discussion about specific details. 
  • MyRiverKit is a simple generic game that aims at exploring and analyzing river dynamics & protection with all kind of public.

  • Games creation 
  • Games creation with WAG is based on a set of configurable bricks and has been formalized in the Crea-WAG methodology, which guides you into creating and manage your own WAG application with a group.
  • Physical kits containing material for WAG games development and turnkey games are available.

    We have started listing propositions for representing different phenomenons and issues with WAG in a FAQ .

    Specific WAG applications

    Our WAG-LIB allows to explore the various applications that have been developped with WAG on local cases. it contains finalized applications as well as work prototypes created during training sessions.

    • INFO-WAG captures and values knowledge from CREA-WAG and COOPLAN
    • Inter-WAG lets you edit your WAG-kits and models online
    • Ana-WAG is used to create multi-agent simulation of a WAG model
