This simulation is an interactive, stochastic, accelerated-time game in which participants take on roles as government ministers (Prime Minister, Minister of Communication, etc.) and must work together as a team, interacting with other governments in a fast-paced environment. Participants must develop strategies to preserve global health, choose policies to contain the pandemic, and handle the political and economic ramifications of their decisions.
- Facilitate understanding of factors contributing to a complex global issue, and develop an appreciation for the challenge of finding solutions.
- Provide a model for evaluating data-based decisions.
- Develop skills in teamwork, negotiation, data analysis and problem solving.
