Aspiring Citizens is an educational project to solve hunger crisis by collaborative, joyful and self-empowered learning.

 

 

 

 

Mission:

 

We believe that all the problems that we face today can be solved by team effort, which needs a collaborative platform as its base. Our project is both a classroom tool, and an outside classroom activity. Collaboration is as ubiquitous as the formal or informal learning environment permits. We are proposing a new kind of an educational solution, an “expanded school” which grows well beyond the walls of the classroom. And last but not least this collaboration ensures a dialogue among generations, nations and cultures. The connectivity will be every language, will be spoken in the Aspiring Citizens project.

Comprised of 8 mini-games or “missions”, the game takes young players from an initial crisis assessment through to delivery and distribution of food aid, with each sequential mission addressing a particular aspect of this challenging process.
