Role Play Game – Strasbourg
In fictitious political groups across two committees, participants become Members of the European Parliament and negotiate between themselves to shape legislation. Players must work together and make difficult decisions as they tackle issues such as water access in an age of climate change and the implications of technological advances.
The Role Play Game shows how European Union legislation is created, from consulting interest groups and forming alliances to agreeing with other institutions and speaking to the media.
This fast-paced game lasts between 2 – 3 hours, is available in all the 24 official EU languages, ideal for groups between 16 and 32 people aged from 14 years old. It must be booked in advance and is free of charge. Games are held from Mondays to Fridays, once in the morning and once in the afternoon.
After the game all the groups also have the opportunity to visit the Hemicycle.
The Role-Play Game is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. In 2023: 01-02/01, 06-10/04, 01/05, 12/05, 18-19/05, 29/05, 08-10/06,14/07, 14-15/08, 01-02/11, 25/12-02/01/2024.
