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.

Friends,

We are writing to add our voice of support during this time of uncertainty, and to provide an update about World Peace Game operations in the near term.

Like all of you, our primary concern is for the health and safety of everyone as we move through this challenging and rapidly-changing period. To that end, we encourage everyone to closely follow medical experts’ guidelines and recommendations. The Center for Disease Control COVID-19 page is an excellent resource.

In the spirit of optimism, we are going to give this situation a few more weeks to evolve before providing updates about this summer’s scheduled World Peace Game camps and master classes in Charlottesville and Portland (June 15-19) or Nashville (July 20-24). We are in contact with our host locations, and we will communicate additional updates about these events as soon as we can. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with plans aimed at keeping our students, teachers, and staff safe.

What we can provide, however, are free activities to engage children while they’re out of the classroom. John and the team are busy putting this series together right now, and in the coming days we will begin sharing these resources with you.

Please know that we are thinking about the World Peace Game community, and that we are committed to returning to our work as soon as we can.

Sincerely,

The World Peace Game Foundation
