ResourCity leuven: scavenger hunt of chemical elements in surprising places

Leuven, 21 April 2021 - Every city is an 'urban mine' and hides a wealth of chemical elements. One of the few advantages of this Corona pandemic is that walking is very popular again, and that is a good thing.

Play ResourCity also in Herentals now

After Mol, Antwerp, Mechelen and the Dutch town of Oss, young and old can now search for chemical elements in Herentals with their smartphone via the game ResourCity.

ResourCity launch in Oss

On 15 April we launched our ResourCity app in Oss, together with the Royal Dutch Chemical Association (KNCV). As a life sciences hub, Oss is the first Dutch city where chemical elements can now be chased in augmented reality.

Why Resourcity?

  • A free augmented reality game, like Pokemon Go
  • An educational tool covering chemistry, technology and sustainable development
  • An original online city guide like nothing you’ve ever seen before

All over the world, we are facing the challenge of meeting the growing demand for raw materials. These raw materials are often found in underground mines, but they’re not inexhaustible. The aim of ResourCity is to teach young people how we can extract and (re)use materials that are becoming increasingly scarce, providing an understanding of the transition from a linear to a circular economy
