Create UNAOC 2012: Innovative Tools for Promoting Intercultural Dialogue

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) in partnership with the MIT Education Arcade, and Learning Games Network have launched the international competition called “Create UNAOC 2012” which seeks app and game developers to produce apps and mobile games that enable new avenues for intercultural dialogue.

The aim of the project is to identify opportunities through innovative tools that promote intercultural dialogue, drawing on unique cultural resources and experiences of developers around the world. Five finalist apps and games will be selected by an international jury, awarded funds for producers to refine their creations and played by delegates of the 5th Annual UNAOC Forum in Vienna, Austria, 27-28 February 2013. The global competition will accept submissions through the end of November 2012.

The UNAOC and its organizing partners want to encourage developers to think of ways that new apps and games can be used to support such pursuits as gender equality, youth development, migrant integration, religious pluralism, better understanding among individuals of different cultural and religious backgrounds, biased media representation of cultures and religions, and education.

The deadline to send submissions is 30 November 2012. For more information, visit this link.
