Mercy Junction will be hosting the game “Survive of Thrive” at Renaissance Presbyterian Church on Monday, May 5 at 6 p.m.
Gina Chamberlin of the Presbyterian Hunger Program will be leading participants in the game, which is described as a fun and interactive way to learn about the importance of international trade agreements and how they impact work for justice for people and the environment.
Have you ever wondered how we apply principles of justice and peace to the ways that trade agreements work? Does the topic seem too big, too far away and too complicated?
The Trade Simulation Game is designed to bring these issues to life through stories from our global partners. Each participant assumes a character in four trade stories loosely based on real scenarios. The characters share their realities with others and work together to understand the role of trade agreements and the people impacted by these agreements. Discussion focuses on how we can respond on behalf of the poor and the environment.
The event is free to attend and Mercy Junction will provide snacks and drinks.
