This is a game based on a paper by Karina Sehested from the UNiversity of Copenhagen. (SEHESTED, K. 2010. Urban Planners as Network Managers and Metagovernors, Planning Theory & Practice 10:2, 245-263).

The aim of this game is to familiarize students with the different roles and combinations of roles they can play in network governance and project planning.

Network governance is a useful description of how decision making and implementation are influenced by networks of agents (as opposed to hierarchical arrangements). It is a useful concept for urban planners to understand how they influence, steer or shape the attention of actors in the planning arena.
