Why the need
World of Communities as a concept has started in Ukraine from the idea that citizens should be more engaged in community life because this engagement guarantees sustainable social and economic development of local communities.
Since 2016 we have been developing new game tools that allow citizens to take responsibility for their lives and communities, deeply understand how the mechanisms behind healthy and prosperous societies work in practice.
World of Communities is developing a national network of practitioners who use serious games and gamification in the field of community development, design and implementation of projects, community development strategies and adult education.
How it works World of Communities players (4-5 players) build their community based on game scenarios. To win the game, players will need to develop the community, extending public infrastructure, managing community assets wisely and launching new businesses, developing professional skills, increasing level of health and happiness.
What is more, throughout this collective effort to build a sustainable community, each player will have to face a variety of tough life choices, thus learning how to balance between life and work, their private interests and the common good.
