Description:
Game ON! Training ideas was based on “War Games” (1983 film) about the threat of nuclear war – avoided by teaching a computer the game of “tic-tac-toe”.
According to critics, that film brought an awareness leap, making millions of people
aware of the dangers of nuclear war and of dangerous applications of military technology. Its main message was: “War is a strange game. The only way to win is not to play”.
Games are an incredible source of experience and learning, and “serious games” are now widely used in a variety of educational and academic settings. Furthermore, participation in games (in various platforms) is on a constant rise.
Learning “how to play” and how to use games in educational contexts can be a powerful tool to develop communication, engagement, understanding of differences, and learn how to deal with conflicts.
The activities will be based on a wide mix of non-formal education methods, experiential learning, discussions and creative workshops.

Objectives:– to explore games as learning tools in different settings and develop political
participation, inclusion and non-violent communication
– to introduce tips and principles of “gamification”, to apply in education (discussing also their negative side effects)
– to empower trainers, youth workers, and leaders and equip them with tools to increase young people’s participation in political life, reduce radicalization and xenophobia, and promote a less violent society
– to develop Education Games based on the learning needs of different youth target groups

Themes addressed by the project:
– War is not an option.
– To spread awareness among local communities
– Intercultural exchange

Financial matters:
Accommodation and lodging covered 100% by the Erasmus +.
Travel expenses covered up to 275 Euro in case of Hungary, the amount is defined by the Distance Calculator

There is a participation fee of 30 EUR! (Fee is asked by the coordinating organization to enhance the quality of training materials, bring experts in the field of non-formal education and their experience.)
