Wildlife Surveillance Competition

With worldwide trade in illegal ivory and fur booming, many species of elephant, rhinos and bigger predators are closer than ever to extinction. Emerging Industry 4.0 technologies can help authorities take on the fight against poachers and illegal hunting in wildlife designated areas. This event will look into how emerging technologies can assist in wildlife surveillance. The 30th CIRP design conference 2020 will provide its participants with an experience of using their inventions to monitor wildlife at the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

The game helps leaders to explore elements of change management, insights of combinations of enablers for organisations to arrive at their goals while simulating the realities of the changes in the business environment while at the same time allowing company employees to engage about ideas to take the organisation to better competiveness. The simulated business environment aims to improve employee satisfaction, growth and sustainability among other indicators. Active learning formats are perfect for dealing with complex topics with many influencing factors and dependencies. A minimum of two companies compete with each other with a minimum of 8 to 16 employees per company. The game can be played over several days with days depending on the level of emersion the players are willing to experience.
