Abstract

LIFE AMDRYC4 is an educational experience in Virtual Reality [compatible with Google Cardboard], also available in tactile version, focused on the impact of different agricultural practices on climate change and the creation of synergies between farming communities, socio-economic development and environmental protection. In other words, created for the dissemination of the main objectives of the LIFE AMDRYC4 project (LIFE16 CCA/ES/000123). It is designed for mobiles and tablets constituting a high-fidelity prototype that was published in the main mobile application markets (apps). The game offers nine different actions to apply to the soil, incorporation of different kinds of organic matter, mechanical treatments, etc., and four turns covering a total of 20 years. The objectives of the application coincide with those of the project and are based on the dissemination of the “4 per 1000” initiative, the knowledge of the ecosystem services provided by the soil and the circular economy, contributing to the mitigation and adaptation of climate change in Mediterranean dryland soils. To better assess the qualities of the prototype and inform future versions of the tool, a questionnaire was designed to collect quantitative and qualitative data among an adult audience of scholars (environmentalists) and professionals (farmers).
