World Peace Game™

June 2014 | Christchurch

wpgDP

The World Peace Game™ is a highly interactive, hands-on political simulation. Teams grapple with complex philosophical issues, negotiating, collaborating and refining their communication skills to meet the goal of the game, world peace.

We have just hosted the first ever World Peace Game™ to be staged in New Zealand, with 20 students aged 11 and 12. The game was played over a total of 18 hours across a three-week period, facilitated by Janet Nicol, who has been trained by John Hunter. Students are raving about the game and parents have been amazed how their kids haven’t stopped talking about their learning.
