How can young people inspire others to achieve a common goal?

Collective Action is a highly interactive learning experience built around the renowned multi-party prisoner’s dilemma, which is at the heart of many global problems. The experience is delivered in-school by highly skilled High Resolves educators and is designed to achieve cognitive, affective and behavioural outcomes.

Through the experience students will:

  • Understand that the best contribution they can make to solving social problems is through working with others to reach a critical mass
  • Feel confident they can continue to contribute to the long-term collective interest of humanity despite seeing other people free-riding
  • Draw on a wide range of interpersonal techniques and approaches to influence others to do the right thing

Signature Activity: CO² Negotiation

The signature activity of the High Resolves experience, this highly-interactive and student-driven simulation places students as ambassadors from dozens of nations who have signed the General Agreement on Climate Change, a fictitious treaty on global warming. Students learn the interplay between the economic cost of their emissions reduction and the collective plight of the planet.

I achieved a better understanding of co-operation, selflessness and many other attributes of being a leader. All of which will stay with me for the rest of my life. I really appreciate the knowledge I have gained today.
