    Date: Oct 28, 2021
    Looking for virtual team building, a leadership workshop, or a fun and engaging way of raising awareness about sustainability in your organization? Look no further! SpiceWorx facilitates a great multi-player online game that guides the participants to collectively cultivate possibilities for transforming themselves and the world.    [Show more]

    The game is called the Possible World Game.

    The Possible World Game is great for virtual team building (no geographical boundaries), leadership development workshops, and raising awareness about sustainability, and inspiring action among the members of your organization.

    The game session takes approximately 4 hours using Zoom and browser, including getting to know, instructions, practice, the actual game, reflection, debriefing, and breaks.
    Here are some responses from the people who experienced the game.

    “Despite cooperation, a broken system doesn’t deliver the desired result.”

    "The game makes you realize how the individual choices that you make in your private life every day influence the state of the world.”

    "I noticed that I need to mix both the collective goal and my individual goal for it to be a real win-win by using my strengths, my expertise, and my passion.”

    "It is more important in my mind to help the majority of people than for a few to gain lots of wealth.“
