‘World Peace Game’ Comes to Darden
Local teacher John Hunter has gained some notoriety for the role-playing “World Peace Game” he created, thanks to a recent film, “World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements.”
Beginning this week, he and the U.Va. Darden School’s Center for Global Initiatives will host the World Peace Game Summer Academy, during which youngsters from all over the world will play the game.
Here’s how Hunter explains his creation: “At the start of the game, the countries represented by students are tangled in disagreement and crisis. Throughout the game, the students must straighten out their differences through diplomacy and strategy, while winning the health and strength of their own countries.”
Perhaps they could add a session for the NFL owners and players. Or the president and Congress.
