"My City - My World" (2013)

During the six day exchange 12 youths from Lithuania and Poland tried to discuss and raise questions on what challenges do cities face in both countries. By finding common problems and their solutions we  allowed the youngsters to develop mutual understanding of each other. The use of the videogame „Simcity 3000“ helped to communicate rather complicated subjects such as local governance, taxes and city planning in an interesting and interactive form.

During the project youths creating their own ideal cities and during discussions they tried to find just how exactly is reality and simulation different. This gave a new perspective of project participants living space, also made a possibility to look differently at daily problems and how they are addressed. Also, during the project, the participants learned how digital simulation games can be used to enhance non-formal education.

The project was financed by the Lithuanian-Polish Youth Exchange Foundation. The partner of the project - Europejski Dom Spotkan Fundacja Nowy Staw.
