in communities around the world, youth
activists, youth workers and educators are looking for
powerful, purposeful activities that can change the world.
At the same time, young people want to connect with
adults in powerful relationships where they can actually
change the world. The Guide to Cooperative Games for Social Change
provides a resource for people who want more from youth
features a powerful introduction to cooperative games,
carefully detailing their relevance for activists and
educators. It continues to provide clear, concise summaries
of more than two dozen activities, including icebreakers, "funners,"
and closers. Each description details exactly how the
activity can be facilitated, as well as the equipment, time,
and space needed.
