Simulation Games in 20 Armenian Schools

Second round of Democracy simulation games on political participation, representation and decision making was carried out in Armenia in October- December 2011.

600 pupils were engaged in civic participation simulations at 20 Armenian schools. The participating pupils had interactive meetings with trained youth wing members of governmental and oppositional political parties to serve as peer-role models, hosted well-known journalists/ political analysts and visited city municipalities to meet region governors/mayors in regions and administrative districts to meet with the head of the relevant communities in the capital. On the fourth day of the simulation games each class elected one delegate to represent the political agenda in the South Caucasus Youth Parliament.   

The simulation games provided the environment where a group of decision makers tested different approaches to a particular problem and used that environment to come to a specific set of quality decisions.

First DSWY project awaked interest, then enthusiasm among the young generation of participating schools and now many of them are waiting for their turn to participate in DSWY simulation games of future years.
