CRISP - Crisis Simulation for Peace e.V.

Since 2007 we develop simulation games and we are still loving it. hence, we are very convinced of the additional benefits of the method as a very powerful learning-tool. If you want to implement a simulation game, you can either chose an already existing one from our portfolio, or you get in touch with us and we develop your individual tailor-made simulation game.

Topics & Formats

Our simulation games cover a wide variety of issues. We are specialised in political and social conflicts and seek to develop adequate simulation games for local needs, ranging from local problems, e.g. in a town, to regional and international conflicts. Over the last years we have developed simulation games on many different topics. In general they can be affiliated to the following categories:

We have worked with numerous organizations on different topcis and with very heterogenous target-groups in Germany as well as abroad. The different formats of our simulation games vary from 4 hours up to 3 days and from 8 participants up to 40.

The Method

A simulation game replicates a segment of reality. The participants take on a role and try to deal with a specific problem, interactively and through means of play.

Within a given scenario the participants are challenged to deal with political and social problems by taking over the role of a stakeholder in the respective conflict.

Important for us is to show different possibilities for civil society to influence the political processes. Our goal is to promote an active and critical citizenry.
