We are pleased to present to you the AflaGame Resource Pack. This is the result of several years of work by six partner organisations collaborating on the project titled “AflaGame: Innovative tool for quality work with young on enhancing financial skills” funded under the Erasmus+ KA220-YOU- Cooperation partnerships in youth program during the period 2022-2024.
“Games are the highest form of inquiry” Albert Einstein.
We agree and recognise that games are the most challenging and engaging driving forces of creativity, learning, and development. They are complex, structured and “programmed” forms of play that have educational potential. Play is now unanimously considered fundamental for the emotional, cognitive and relational development of children. Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child also recognises the right of children not only to rest and leisure but also to play and recreation.
The game was created as a result of the collaboration of six non-governmental organisations including Stichting Aflatoun International, Netherlands, Amsterdam:
Our project focuses on the gamification of financial literacy, mainly through creating board games which increase life skills and improve financial behaviour for youth. We created a set of 6 board games created during international game development workshops. Each of them is unique and distinctive. Every game serves as a tool that can be applied in your everyday work with children and youth. The document provides a detailed description of each game.
