As a continuation of the workshop that was held last month, Peace Generation Indonesia created “Boardgame For Peace” project for high school and college students to become agents of peace. The project aims to promote peace and tolerance message by using “Galaxy Obscurio” board game created by Peace Generation Indonesia with support from Kummara. Before the project starts officially, the facilitators had their training first in Bandung.
There were about 15 facilitators who came from different cities: Bandung, Jakarta, Padang, Surabaya, Solo and Makassar. At the second day of the project, Eko along with Rio and Augi gave a full day workshop about board game. Eko gave a brief explanation and shared some examples of how board game can be used for greater good. Then, facilitator got a chance to try “Galaxy Obscurio” and list all the learning points about peace and tolerance from the game. After the play session, Eko briefed the facilitators on how to use board game for learning and conduct an effective game-based learning session.
“Boardgame For Peace” project will be held in 5 cities: Bandung, Solo, Surabaya, Padang and Makassar from October 2017 until January 2018.
