“Moving Tomorrow - A Cultural Journey” won the silver medal at the Reimagine Education Awards.
ESCP’s serious game was developed by Berlin campus Professor and Renault Chair of Intercultural Management Scientific Director Marion Festing with PhD candidate Tobias Schumacher. After having been nominated for the prestigious German government's awards (Deutscher Computerspielepreis) and made it through to the finals of the 2019 International Business Learning Games Competition, it had been shortlisted to compete in the Business Education category of the Reimagine Education Awards – the so-called Oscars of education. They showcased their innovations to a global audience of 600 educational leaders at the 2019 Reimagine Education Conference on the 9th of December, with the winners revealed at the prestigious Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on the 10th. “We are thrilled to have won this prize which rewards the efforts made to make this game a very effective tool for building intercultural competence,” commented Marion Festing.
As a reminder, you can read and watch (below) a presentation of the game.
"Moving Tomorrow - A Cultural Journey" is so successful at teaching intercultural skills, it has been expanded to new programmes and further developed with the help of Groupe Renault in the context of the Renault Chair of Intercultural Management.
In addition, ESCP is shortly going to release a licensed version of the game in order to offer it to a wider audience. You can already test a demo version here.
