The protests that spread spatially

In this video, we will discuss how protests sometimes have a ‘spatial’ form.

Welcome back! This week introduces spatial dimension to the models. We will also introduce the term Agent-Based Models and interact with a simple simulation in NetLogo. Furthermore, you will investigate how a protest may spread spatially and look at some real-life examples of models. Finally, we will wrap up all the course’s activities and point to what to do next in order to learn more about modelling and simulations.

In this video, we will discuss how protests sometimes have a ‘spatial’ form and may spread by neighbour-to-neighbour interaction and we will present some examples of such protests.
