Simulation: World Trade Game

Join us in this insightful and fun activity where we simulate the world trade and its difficulties through playing.

The World Trade Game is developed by JCI The Netherlands in cooperation with Professor Tinbergen of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam. The game is centred around world trade where the world is represented by 12 countries. Twelve teams control these countries. In three to five rounds, each round represents one year, the world trade is simulated. Every team has the task to get their workers to produce end-products with which it feeds, clothes their citizens and provides cars, energy and tourism. These end-products can be produced by a finite amount of raw materials each country is provided with at the beginning of each round. Countries can also invest. These investments can lead to more raw materials each round thereafter, which can lead to more end-products produced if the country has or finds enough labour.
