The project aims at training local humanitarian workers in participatory, gender-aware simulation design, followed by a period of coaching and mentoring through the independent design of programmatically relevant simulations as well as through the implementation of the simulations.
This project trains local humanitarian workers on participatory approaches to the basics of simulation design as a tool to communicate local understandings of complex issues. As a result they will be enabled to design, implement, and evaluate their own simulation game formats based on the needs of the community they are working in.
