Generation 7.0

Project Description

Eurasia Foundation’s Generation 7.0 is an integrated mobile game and social networking platform that will connect young adults from the Middle East and the United States. Eurasia Foundation will build a bilingual online educational game, in which cross-cultural teams will proceed through a series of scenarios based on a social problem that fosters collaboration, teamwork, respect for diversity, and shared understanding. Utilizing a mobile application and social media, the game will support ongoing interpersonal communication that will lead to stronger, more positive cross-cultural attitudes. The gaming framework and platform developed during the project will serve as a basis for developing new games and scaling up this exciting approach to virtual exchange.
