World Peace Game Update

Things are starting to click as students are figuring out how to navigate their way through the variety of challenges the World Peace Game throws at them. There is now a wave of fast paced energy that rushes through the room during negotiation periods as students work towards discussing possible solutions, making agreements, signing documents, and balancing budgets. Perhaps most impressive has been the innovative technology that students have created to solve problems, such as the salt water purification system that was created to enable two countries to save their crops after the aquifer they have been using began to run dry.  We will resume game play next Tuesday with only a few crises remaining that need to be solved. The game ends when all crises have been solved and each country has increased its budget from the beginning of the game.
