 About The Game

Cantor’s World is a game, designed to learn about the Inclusive Wealth Index (IWI) and how it complements other indices. In the game, players experiment with policy choices and experience firsthand the tug-of-war between short-term results and long-term sustainability. The participants play the role of the sole architect of the country and decide the specific targets for their respective countries. The players then make changes to the various parameters in the game through specific policy interventions that are available either as monetary investment or regulatory change or providing subsidies. These actions by the players affect the status of resources in the country and then have a cascading effect on the produced, natural and human capital. They will then be able to measure the impact of their decisions on the various variables and make course corrections every year. The player’s objectives in the game are both personal and global. A player must aspire to achieve SDGs 4, 10 and 13 targets for their individual country and bring in 7 percent GDP growth for the world.

Target Audience

Master’s level students of economics and sustainability studies and mid-career policy makers.

The game has been developed by  http://fieldsofview.in/ 

Approach

As part of its pilot study to test the game, UNESCO MGIEP will conduct two workshops to demonstrate the game to invited lecturers from 10 selected universities, introduce and train them on the game, in order to facilitate its employment as a pedagogical tool in classrooms. Students and teachers from these universities shall form the first sample pool for the pilot study on the effectiveness of Cantor’s World. The first workshop is scheduled to be held on 24th-25th July 2018 in New Delhi, India.
