World Trade Game

Educational Game, courtesy of the World Council of Churches

Introduction

The aim of this game is to help the participants understand how trade influences the development of a country and to create interest and discussion about the world trading system in an enjoyable and non-academic way.

The earth is divided into two parts: The economically rich north (industrialised countries as the US, Japan and Europe) and the poorer Global South (meaning Africa, Latin America and parts of Asia). There are many ways of explaining the differences between North and South but one thing is clear. The gap between rich and poor is becoming bigger partly because of the world trading system we have today which makes the North richer at the cost of the South.
The game will try to show, through the production of different paper products, how the world trade works. How do countries interact? Who are the winners? Who are the losers?

Who can play?

The game can be played by anyone preferably over the age of 14. The number of participants should be between 15 and 30, if the group is bigger than that you can run two games at the same time. The rules are simple and the knowledge you need to play is elementary.

Time and place

You need at least an hour for the game including the discussion afterwards. The game can be used alone or as a part of a longer educational program.
You need a room big enough for 6 groups with around 4-6 participants in each group. Each group needs a chair for each participant and one table. There should also be space to move around between the groups.
Preferably 6 groups divided into the 3 different categories (see below). If you use less than 6 groups make sure that the balance between 'technology' and 'raw material' stays the same.
The game organisers need a table, a blackboard, and some spare pens, papers and 'money'.
