CRISP - Simulation Game

Simulation Game

Training: Business Game Energy & Peace

The training is aimed at all those who are active in informal education. During the training, participants will be taught the simulation game "Energy & Peace". Teachers and trainers in particular are faced with the challenge of communicating current, complex problems in a holistic manner.

The choice of a suitable method is important here. Experience shows that simulation games are known in schools, but are only used sporadically. In a two-day workshop, an introduction to the topics of energy supply and security, as well as peacebuilding, takes place. On this basis, the simulation game is passed on. Through the workshop, the participants have the necessary knowledge and tools to carry out the simulation independently. Together with the participants, different formats will be developed to integrate the simulation into regular lessons. Within the simulation, the question of how economic development, energy security, sustainability and, last but not least, democratic and peaceful social coexistence can be brought into harmony will be addressed. This complex and topical issue is to be dealt with in an interdisciplinary manner in school lessons.

Target Group

The training is aimed at all trainers and those active in informal education work.

Project Goals

The aim of the training is to provide participants with a concrete, practice-oriented introduction to a simulation game on the topics of energy supply/security and peaceful coexistence. This will expand their toolbox of methods in concrete terms and their methodological competence in general. In addition to an introduction to the basics and the didactic characteristics of the method, they receive all materials necessary for the implementation, so that the simulation game can be carried out independently immediately. After the workshop, the participants are asked to conduct the simulation game "Energy and Peace" on their own at schools in Berlin. The resulting results are evaluated, summarized and prepared and returned to the participants. The simulation game can subsequently be repeated.
