A correct implementation of gamification strategies allow us to go from mere connectivity to civil engagement, allowing the citizens and collectives to participate in a dynamic and proactive way in actions that generally require a joint effort and give the civil society strength for promoting and leading a common change.

Can the gamification help the citizens to live in a different way the urban spaces?

In which way the new technologies give a new sense to the contemporary city?

This and other are the questions that are at the core of the symposium “Let’s play the city!” that has a main objective to elaborate a reflection on the relationship between urban spaces and ludic practices, generating a dialogue between the Communication disciplines and the gamification, expert professionals.
