Consortium members

Initiated by the PeaceNexus Foundation, a consortium of international peacebuilding institutions came to together in August 2013 to develop this web-based game.

The game will be used in the core training programs of these key training institutes. The principal target audience is mid-career professionals who are or will be deployed to missions or projects linked to peacebuilding.

The game was financed by contributions from the consortium partners, an investment by game development company &ranj, and an additional grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL. The game was developed by &Ranj through a process of co-creation with the consortium members.
