Youth Development Program

“I am a passenger on the spaceship Earth.”

―Buckminster Fuller

In the 1960s, when the world was riddled with all kinds of international conflict, an American architect and systems theorist named Buckminster Fuller used a clever metaphor as a tool to draw up a new way of looking at the world. He described the Earth as a spaceship whose passengers were all its human inhabitants. The world view “Spaceship Earth” encourages human beings to perform their unique tasks dutifully to keep the spaceship functioning. Fuller’s challenge was for us to “make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”

There’s no other demographic more capable to rise to this challenge than the youth. As inheritors of the future, the youth have the honor and responsibility to carve out the future. Yes, the generations before today’s youth may have faltered in making the world a better place to live in: global crises like political conflict, climate change, economic inequalities and more are becoming tougher than ever. But the youth of today are more active, energetic, and idealistic than ever as well -- this is the generation that is growing up in the age of information and are using it to learn hard and speak up more loudly than ever.

At We R One World, we channel this energy of resistance and social consciousness among the youth by conducting a unique youth development program: a world simulator game based on Buckminster Fuller’s World Game, an educational simulation that enables participants to tackle global-scale challenges head on.

Game play: a fun twist to youth empowerment activities

1. Act as the representatives of nation-states or global organisations

2. Be presented with a challenge: a global crisis

3. Be given pieces of information on which they may base their game decisions and moves

4. Be encouraged to communicate and cooperate with their peers in formulating plans and ideas

5. Experience the bliss of solving a problem through teamwork

At the end of every world simulation day, our participants report feeling a renewed sense of responsibility towards themselves and their society: not only do they feel their interpersonal and professional skills have improved, they are also able to solidify their resolve as citizens of the world.

Thinking of ideas for youth activities? We R One World is the soundest choice for you!

We R One World’s world simulator game is the perfect way to inspire the youth to become leaders: it’s educational, interactive, and most of all, fun! What can be better than that?
