CRISP - Crisis Simulation for Peace e.V.

Learning Goals

All simulation games listed here, aim to achieve the following general learnign goals. Furthermore, each simulation game has also specific learning objectives.

1) Political Processes: Our simulation games transform participants into stakeholders and let them experience processes of genotaitions and decision-making. This way they promote the development of a democratic consciousness

2) Active Citizenship: Showing different possibilities for civil society to influence political processes is particularly important to us. Our goal is to promote the development of an active and critical citizenry.
