One of the magical and somewhat mystical components of the World Peace Game is the sense of agency and stewardship that it ignites in students. I use the term “ignites” because children have a deep sense of compassion, empathy, and care that we can steer, guide, and further develop, finding outlets and applications for it through learning. Presenting students with the reality of world dilemmas that affect millions of people is a portal that reaches their sense of care. Giving them knowledge and tools that allow them to think of a world without these dilemmas, because solutions have been created, led, and implemented, ignites their sense of empowerment, creativity, purpose, and gives meaning to their learning and their lives.
