ABOUT THE GAME

The World Peace Game is a hands-on political simulation that gives players the opportunity to explore the connectedness of the global community through the lens of the economic, social, and environmental crises and the imminent threat of war. The goal of the game is to extricate each country from dangerous circumstances and achieve global prosperity with the least amount of military intervention. As “nation teams,” students will gain greater understanding of the critical impact of information and how it is used.

Master Classes Are Open to Teachers of All Grade Levels

A Master Class with John Hunter is an unparalleled experience for teachers to come together in an environment insulated from the demanding rhythms and routines of the day in order to interrogate their own teaching practices. Classes are meant for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.

Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, class participants are led by John Hunter through a series of reflective questions and activities that uncover the grounding assumptions of their teaching practice.

It is with great sadness, but out of an abundance of caution and care for the well-being of children and teachers around the world, that we are suspending all World Peace Game camps and master classes until health authorities indicate that it is safe for children and adults to gather in the way that the game was intended to be played.

The World Peace Game Foundation seeks to create a deeply interpersonal, physical experience for children to viscerally understand and experience the ideals of compassion in the "empty space.” We look forward to the day when we can gather together again safely and resume our practice of teaching peace to children and adults around the world.

Please check our website periodically for updates on the recommencement of programming as well as projects for youth and training opportunities for teachers. A refresher course for teachers who are certified to facilitate the World Peace Game will be offered in the coming months as well as a training for educators focused on the “empty space” practice.

Sincerely,

The World Peace Game Foundation
