Simulation Game: Financial Markets

EN-PAZ invited us together with planpolitik and 8 experts on financial markets to develop a simulation game on the topic for pupils. During the four day workshop, we first introduced the experts to the method of simulation gaming and then developed a common framework for the simulation game. The aim of the simulation game is to better understand the mechanisms, dynamics and roots of the financial markets. We are still in the developing process and will test the game in spring 2015 for the first time.

Format: 4-days-workshop Participants: Experts and academics on financial markets Location: Berlin (Germany)

Target Group

Experts and academics on financial markets.

Project Goals

Apart from a better understanding of how the financial system is working, the future participants should also be enabled to develop a critical view on its basic concepts. They should develop an own opinion, and reflect on how financial markets can be controlled more democratically.
