  • 3. This thesis presents the hypothesis that the aspirational gamingterm, “Leveling Up”, meaning to acquire additional power andresponsibility through the successful completion of extreme quests,may be applied to reimagining civic engagement.Leveling up suggests heroic, almost superhuman challenges, as anappropriate description of the efforts needed to decipher so-calledwicked problems.Wicked problems are such that they cannot be resolved with atraditional analytical approach. Existing in a dynamic socialcontext, with no given solutions, every effort to solve a wickedproblem creates new complexity.In contrast to current methods to solve such problems, which havereached a paralysis in institutionalized effectiveness, this thesiswill show the capability of an intrinsically incentivised systemto create civic value from crowdsourced groups dedicated toimproving society as their explicit goal.
