CURRENT EVENTS AT THE WORLD PEACE GAME CAMP IN CHARLOTTESVILLE 2015
As multiple crises and conflicts, seemingly intractable, arise for each nation, the governments continue peace talks and resolutions. This willingness to negotiate with each other to find mutually beneficial outcomes signifies hope for future generations'. Joint efforts to maintain accords in the long term will prove difficult, but not impossible through open channels of communication.
eachers from six countries converged upon Charlottesville for the inaugural International Master Class. WPG-trained facilitators from around the globe joined John for a week of work on replicating the World Peace Game. They shared their experiences and "lessons learned" from teaching the WPG in their home countries: US, Norway, Austria, Romania, Norway, and Mali.

John and the World Peace Game Foundation (WPGF) were suddenly faced with the task of addressing immediate issues that arose from the postponement. An inspired idea was proposed to mitigate the problematic situation.
From Austria to Australia, the internationally diverse group of teachers and industry professionals comprised one of the largest groups the WPG Master Class has ever hosted. Many teachers brought unique insights from their local classrooms and school systems. A Croatian school administrator was even in attendance, hoping to institute the World Peace Game as a teaching tool in her school system on a broader basis.
