Very few of us will every balance billion dollar budgets, allocate humanitarian resources, or tackle climate change.     The challenge is this – how does one educate non-experts in deeply complex issues without letting them know they’re learning?   The answer is learning through PLAY!

Click through to learn about Darfur, employment layoffs, energy management, domestic food contamination, immigration, influenza outbreaks, infrastructure management, the oil markets, urban planning, Congressional redistricting, terrorism, state budgeting, water health management, waste management, and the National budget.

You can find more examples at Games for Change, Superstructgames, and Social Impact Games.
