LittoSIM is a participatory simulation that allows players to experiment with submersion risk management. To anticipate submersion, players act on their hometown by modifying land use, dunes, dikes, and habitats. When waves come, the model calculates the extent of the submersion, and players can observe the effects on the simulated territory.
Back in their hometown, players can adapt their prevention strategies to the risk. This management is tested at the level of a municipality, but in this territory, four border municipalities face this same risk. Will they be able to find common solutions?
