Charles is working with the GENI team to present “WeROne World”, an innovative live action role play simulation, in Melbourne on 2 November. This event aims to shift perspectives and increase global awareness of the participants. Inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller, often described as the ‘Einstein of the 21st Century’, WeROne World is a constructed game that educates participants to explore economics, culture and society, in order to foster the skills and talent necessary for thrivability in the 21st century. The day long program, played on a 12 metre x 5 metre map, is broken down into four rounds with each individual allocated a role - representing either a country, commercial bank, food, energy or environmental organisation, UN, UNESCO or the World Health Organisation.
