The Engagement Game Lab (EGL) is an applied research lab at Emerson College focusing on the development and study of games, technology, and new media to enhance civic life. The EGL works directly with its partner communities to innovate civic engagement processes, augment stakeholder deliberation, and broaden the diversity of participants in local decision-making.
The EGL is also the home of the New Urban Mechanics Collaborative, a partnership with the City of Boston for researching and evaluating civic innovation tools created in cooperation with the city.
We’ve been supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the MacArthur Foundation, and our partners include the City of Boston, the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, the City of Philadelphia, Detroit Works Long Term Planning, Tufts University, and the Smithsonian Institute.
