The first Boardgame For Peace workshop was held at Bandung on October 28th 2017. For 2 days, 60 participants from high school and university students gathered to learn about peace and tolerance also how to spread it in their community.
On the second day of the workshop, Rio led the whole game session. Every participant received “Galaxy Obscurio”, a board game created by Peace Generation Indonesia with support from Kummara. Rio started the session by briefly explaining about board game and using it for a greater purpose. Then all the participants, in groups, played the game with facilitators.
After the play session, every participant reflected on their play session and what learning points that they can take. After Rio gave a bit of briefing on how to use game as a learning tool effectively, participants were given a mission to play “Galaxy Obscurio” with different people near the workshop location.
