The Capa.City Game is an exploratory game which supports collectives to structure collective actions to bring change to their everyday environments. The tool consists of five separate mini-games which guide a collective to strengthen its capacities to envision, evaluate and operationalize collective objectives for spatial transformation. By means of step by step guides and playing materials, each mini-game facilitates a particular phase in the development of an action for spatial transformation, namely, finding existing potential for change in the collective and its environment, developing a manifesto for change and an action plan to structure this potential; challenging them to develop a realistic and contextualize action for change; envisioning and developing coalitions to mobilize change in practice. A collective can play all, some or only one of the mini-games depending on its particular needs. The tool aims to provide a flexible framework for helping collectives to take part in the transformations happening in their everyday life to shape more sustainable urban futures together.
