    The GIGA is excited to provide interested practitioners in democracy education from Colombia Solidaria and related grass-root organisations in Hamburg, with a first look at the results of the project “Democracy and Games: Analogue and Digital Game-Based Learning Tools for Youth Work (DEMOGAMES).” The workshop offers insights into the educational tools, methods, and materials developed for the purpose of democracy education in formal and non-formal youth work. 

    Two Game-Based Learning Workshops 

    In this (second) one-day workshop – held on 31 August 2022, 01:00‒07:00 p.m. – we will introduce practitioners to the game-based learning tools developed in the DEMOGAMES project. The workshop will take place at the GIGA office in Hamburg, Germany, which is nicely located at the famous Binnenalster. The workshop also allows participants to try out some of the analog and digital games themselves, and provides participants with guidance and facilitation tips to implement these tools in their own settings. The workshop will be bilingual English/ Spanish.

    • Provide background information on the eight games of the DEMOGAMES project. 

    • Introduction to game-based learning in democracy education. 

    • Introduction to the Reference Framework of Competences for Democratic Culture and how they can be trained using the eight games from the Democracy Game Box.

    Democracy and Games: Analog and Digital Game-Based-Learning Tools for Youth Work (DEMOGAMES)

    DEMOGAMES is a Youth in Action project within the Erasmus+ framework. Through the development of several analogue and digital games, the project will advance knowledge transfer in the field of democracy education. Democracy education enables young people to recognize and represent their interests, to participate in political processes and, in doing so, to meet their fellow human beings and their concerns with respect. The project addresses these issues and uses the didactic approach of game-based learning to engage young citizens with respect to learning about, through and for democracy.
