Institute for Economic Research

Start date: 10 July 2017

End date: 12 July 2017

On July 10th to 12th the Institute for Economic Research (IRE) set up its Energy Game at the Swiss pavilion at EXPO 2017 Astana - Future Energy.

The Energy Game challenges the participants by letting them think at how energy production affects our lives and the environment, but also at how our beliefs shape our decisions and opinions on this topic.

Almost 600 visitors participated in the Game during the three days. Prof. Rico Maggi and PhD student Alessandra Motz also had the pleasure of welcoming in the Game the Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer and the Genevan State Councilor Pierre Maudet with their delegations, and briefly discussing with them topics which are crucial to the future of Switzerland.
