Global Inequality Challenge Game
Based on several other similar games I have seen but could not find when I needed it. This activity looks as disparity in income and living levels around the world and can be used to examine and discuss a range of issues and topics, particularly in the Global Programme Zone. The Cubs need to consider three income levels; these can represent three classes in a developing country â€“ e.g. factory/plantation owner, manager and worker; three different countries at different development levels; or different workers in a product and distribution chain â€“ factory worker/farmer, agent, 1st world employee in a shop selling the goods. Their choices can be used as a lead in to discuss a range of topics from diet, inequality, social issues, role of charities and international aid, welfare systems, added value, fair trade etc. Can then survive? Frequently only a few turns are needed before interesting debate starts - the game is flexible and is best seen as a entry to wider discussions and starting point for further activities.
I've only used this with Cubs but would work equally well with Scouts.
