Where am I? A videogame for building cultural integration and coping with grief for Ukrainian children and young people in Zurich

An innovative videogame aims to help refugee children from Ukraine integrate and feel more comfortable in Zurich. They can playfully explore the city of Zurich in a virtual way and at the same time establish local references to their home city. In a 3D model, characteristic buildings of Zurich are modelled, e.g. the main railway station, the ETH Zurich or the Letzigrund, and can be replaced by corresponding buildings from Ukrainian cities, e.g. Vozdvyzhenka, St. Andrew’s Church or the NSC Olympiyskiy Stadium.
