The simulation game “Tandera” is about a region between self-determination and territorial integrity. The game is fictional, but helps to get a better understanding of conflict transformation, test different approaches in problem solving, and find sustainable solutions to a territorial conflict.
Throughout the entire game the participants were very active and devoted to reach their main goals. By the end of the simulation, they came up with solutions for further status of a conflict area and IDPs question. During the post-game evaluation, the participants had a very interactive and intense discussion about their experience and possible ways to transfer new approaches into reality.
The game gathered youth to help them understand conflict dynamics and the capacities of the international community to resolve challenges that arise in the process of peace agreements negotiations. Participants had a chance to learn about different ways to tackle problems and experience dealing with different conflict groups.
“Tandera” was conducted for 300 young people between the ages of 16 and 27 that are interested in the topics of industry 4.0, globalization, climate, and politics.
