The World’s Future is a social simulation (3 to 4 hours) in which players adopt high-level leadership roles within a world much like ours. Players make choices about energy and industrial investments, social development, and environmental management, among other factors, which influence their country.
Bringing together diverse stakeholders to play the simulation engages them deeply in the topic. Although they may begin with the idea of “winning”, i.e., becoming the most successful country, they quickly realize that the actions of other countries can have a huge impact on their own and feel the pressure to find other solutions.
As the participants make decisions and watch as the impacts are realized, the learning experience becomes more real. The emotions associated with visualizing the results make it easier to retain information and understand the tradeoffs and synergies necessary to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Players often mention feeling a distinct mind shift after our workshops, as they more deeply understand the interconnectivity of the global goals.
There is a 25 person limit for this free event. After 25 registrants, please e-mail Jennifer Bowden, firstname.lastname@example.org, to be added to the waitlist.
