SIM Democracy, Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom: Regional Office for Southeast and East Asia, Thailand
SIM Democracy is an interactive educational tool through simulation of a democratic community. Within less than an hour, it allows players to play different roles and actively perform tasks and responsibilities in a democratic society; such as the government that makes parliamentary and public decisions, plan budget, allocate resources, provide infrastructure and run the country, or ordinary citizens who generate income, pay taxes and actively participate in monitoring government administration. As a result, its fundamental elements and better understanding of public policy are fostered and democratic values are strengthened. Most importantly, it generates politically related questions in young minds, creating platforms for debates on political issues and its government administration.
