During TEDxYouth@Adliswil, Christian will be speaking about the journey of WeAct: to make sustainability achieve mainstream adoption. As opposed to punishment, or “shamification,” WeAct relies on team dynamics, learning by doing and the concept of gamification (using game elements in a non game context) to make the quest for sustainability into an interactive experience. Through their innovative approach WeAct has helped change the behavior of more than 1000 persons in companies, universities and schools and this is just the beginning.
