The objective of the game
There are several things you can get from playing the IFF World Game with a group of people. Firstly, the game helps generate innovative ideas to contribute to sustainability and resilience. Secondly it helps a group of people develop foresight through a common understanding of global challenges. Thirdly it can provide a platform for wise practical action. And finally, sharing the ideas generated by the game on the IFF Game Blog helps everyone who joins the network to build on each others ideas.
Purpose of the Game
To imagine how you, as a group, could contribute to increasing the resilience of your society (family, neighbourhood) in the face of the big issues challenging us humans, to create a viable and fulfilling form of one-planet living that works both locally and globally.
Spirit of the Game
This is a collaborative learning game with the emphasis on shared creative thinking. The competitive focus is with the situational challenges rather than with the other players. The game structure starts off with review of global challenges which are impacting local communities (and increasingly will do so). It then moves on to challenge the players to find their own shared viewpoint and response on all this. The final stage is to generate ideas that feel relevant and exciting in developing greater resilience. The game combines learning about the serious challenges we face whilst enabling it to be fun, creative and energizing.
