• - The Perspectivity Challenge -

     

    STEP INTO THE SHOES OF THOSE

    WHO MAKE THE DECISIONS

    ON OUR FOOD, WATER, ENERGY,

    SECURITY, HEALTH & CLIMATE

     

  • Your Challenge starts here.

     

    In this world, we see growth spurts, limited resources, international negotiations, downturns and conflicts. So we made this Challenge reflect this.

    The players in the Challenge will face the crucial trade-off between long-term sustainability and short-term economic growth.

     

    What will the future look like? Will you step in and participate in the action?

     

    The Challenges were designed by Perspectivity

    to improve our grasp on important complex issues.

     

    Our central question is:

    Why is it so difficult for us - the people on this planet who need to share their resources with each other - to strive for the good of all?

  • We designed these Challenges for you...

    which one will you try ?

     

    We have designed several Challenges and we even have custom made Challenges.

    We played them on (almost) all continents. Choose a Challenge of your taste &

    Join the worldwide experience of The Perspectivity Challenges

    Remember all Challenges have a similar set up - but do vary from each other!

    FOOD

    The food challenge deals with the question of how we can sustainably feed a growing world population. Should you invest in intensive or organic farms? Play local or global? Can we prevent ourselves from disasters?

    STRESS NEXUS

    & the Next Nexus!

    The interconnected challenges at the nexus of energy, water and food will strongly shape the future. In this game you may play a company, seeking a secure market for your production. You may play a country desperately short of water. You will face land shortages, real or imagined. Innovation, boycotts, partnerships, price fluctuations, free trade, bad harvests, turbulence: it’s all in the game.

    CLIMATE

    Players face the crucial trade-off between long term sustainability and short term economic growth. Can you deal with the complex problem of climate change?

    DECISION MAKERS

    Participants are responsible to optimise the performance of their unit in an or ganisation. Will you manage to get tasks accomplished, deal with tension, to handle conflicts, to spend your budget wisely and satisfy staff?

    SECURITY

    Should we use hard security (intelligence, police, military forces) or soft security (diplomacy, negotiation, dialogue) in order to build a secure society? How to build meaningful and trustful engagement and partnership with civil society on security matters? Developed together with the Human Security Collective.

    PUBLIC HEALTH

    In the Public Health Challenge players experience the dilemmas of how to pay for healthcare investments, medicines and research. Is it better to invest local or global? And which health products offer the best return on investment, preventative or curative products?

  • Decide what's right. It's your call.

    Why does this Challenge matter?

    What's behind it all? And who?

     

    Those are a lot of questions! And rightly so!

    In current times of increasing complexity,

    the blue prints we've been holding onto,

    are not working for us anymore in the best way.

    At Perspectivity we believe we need different tools and processes

    that acknowledge and use the power of complexity and diversity.
