Are you ready to be WoC [online] game partner?
Yes, I am!
Why do we create WoC [online] now?
We want to help CSOs, local grass-roots activists and other civic sector actors
to prepare for realities of the new world,
for which this quarantine is probably not the last one.
Remote education
Previously planned activities including workshops and seminars are postponed until the end of the crisis. Almost all traditional educational formats except online are disappearing.
Limited access
A usual circle of donor funded NGOs have little connection with their communities and limited mobilization capacity.
It's time to look for new formats for the development of civic participation and involvement in conditions of self-isolation and social distance.
New lifestyle
People will develop new habits: the growth of social distancing, even greater prevalence of online, life in one place, new conditions to plan and execute usual activities.
These trends will persist for a long time,

so we suggest you

to become a partner and push the development of the simulation online-game World of Communities.

Find like-minded people, develop
yourself and your communities, despite any obstacles
