The Perspectivity Network was set up in India in 2010 with the Perspectivity Game being organised for staff and fellows at Indicorps, Ahmedabad and for leaders from different NGOs in Mumbai.
Since then, the Perspectivity Game session has been facilitated two years in a row at the prominent Asian Forum on Global Governance in Delhi, for policy makers and research fellows at Takshashila, the governmental think tank Observer Research Foundation (ORF), staff at Amnesty International and for Janagraaha. In addition, a number of open game sessions have been conducted with enthusiastic youth from diverse backgrounds.
It’s very interesting to see how negotiations happen, and how we can move beyond our narrow understanding of individual interests to pursue collective goals.

A train the trainer session in February 2013 built a network of local game facilitators which will increase reach and impact in India. Future plans also include exploring the idea of a new theme for the board game that will focus on more pressing issues in Indian society such as governance, corruption, inequality etc. The key message and values at Perspectivity are very relevant to Indian society and will play an important role in shaping our growth.
