“We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.”
― R. Buckminster Fuller
The world today is in a precarious situation. Every day, we’re bombarded with alarming news: wars, rising poverty rates, climate change, conflicts within or among governments, and more. This can be overwhelming, and it can cause us to feel distraught and restless. If only there’s something I can do about it, we tell ourselves.
But thanks to Buckminster Fuller, an American architect, inventor, and educator, we have a tool that enables us to effectively come up with and test out solutions to these global problems. Buckminster Fuller developed World Game, an educational simulation that allowed participants to walk in the shoes of the world’s solution-makers for a day. Armed with a full database of information, heightened focus, and, most of all, strong cooperation among each other, World Game participants experienced the highs and lows of international-scale problem solving and come out more active, more determined citizens of the world than ever before.
We R One World conducts and facilitates a world simulator activity based on Fuller’s World Game. Together, we will work towards a deeper understanding of the world, our peers, and ourselves.
