Diversity in the context of flood resilience

GoC

The Gifts of Culture board game is a role-playing simulation set in a diverse cultural community. Players represent various groups living in the flood-prone valley. Although their views and ideals differ, they are driven by the same goal – to improve living conditions in their communities. How will they achieve this goal under the constant threat of devastating floods?

Information exchange and collaboration can greatly enhance the decision-making process, however, diverse cultural backgrounds do not make this task easier.

What participants say

  • The game helped me realize just how difficult cooperation between many different groups of people is when there is no leader who would organize the meeting and committee's work.

  • I’ve learned that long-term decisions are more effective, but they require collective effort. And it’s very difficult to collaborate with each other without knowing the interests of different groups.
