Who Wants to Be a Member of the European Parliament?

Coming from Poland there’s an new online game that imitates the European Parliament. In the game players from EU (and other) countries can discuss current issues, join political fractions, cast their votes and much more. You can read more about this game in this article or on the game site: http://www.bemep.eu/. Supposedly there will also be e-learning lessons that will teach participants about EU politics, though non are currently available.

As you can guess, I already signed up for the game and taken a look around. I am still looking for a fraction that promotes e-learning to join - or maybe I’ll just create my own e-learning/geek fraction ;) Jokes apart - I think the game is a great EU initiative that will hopefully help us to learn more about the mysterious EU politics and build a stronger EU identity.
