Create Your Game at Operation P.E.A.C.E. 2.0!

Operation P.E.A.C.E 2.0 is a continuation of the project Operation P.E.A.C.E. (Practical and Entertaining Adventure for Conflict-resolution and English-teaching) organized by MEGA in cooperation with Academia Nicolae Dumitrescu and under the supervision of the American Councils for International Education last year in Moldova. It was aimed at using gamification in confict resolution and peace building and creating board games on this topic.

The 2.0 edition now focuses on creating electronic versions of the board games developed then. It will span onto two weekends, the Workshop and Hackathon, when young girls interested in IT and gamification will learn how to use it, playtest the board games, and then develop their electronic versions. The process of developing games will be gamified by offering the participating teams to accomplish “missions” and “challenges” appearing in our MEGA Game.

The electronic versions of the games will then be offered on an open-source basis to teachers of English in 6 countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. They will use these games in their English lessons with focus on conflict resolution and peace building. Additionally, the games will be released openly in the internet for anyone to use them, play in them, and improve their social interaction and conflict resolution skills.

The participating teams, who create the best electronic games, as determined by the jury, will be given awards. The first place gets 300 USD for the team, the second place receives 100 USD, while the third one brings computer accessories to the team members.
