LEARNING THROUGH EXPERIENCE
SmileUrbo is a highly effective tool in learning how to transmit ideas and express interests without losing focus on the group’s common good.
The game has proven to be useful in various fields, such as social enterprise and education, as it provides multiple real-life applications.
SmileUrbo is based on academic field research as well as psychological and sociological theories. The role-playing methodology permits participants to experience, in person, challenges of group processes and to practice negotiation, common good alliances, trust building, networking, teamwork, and consensus building.
These all are skills that are not being learned in the standard education system and are key for teams and communities to work effectively and develop.
It is a new and exciting experience that allows you to observe how small decisions affect the overall fate of a whole community (Roberto)
