Emergent Media Center at Vermont-based Champlain College is currently developing an educational video game designed for young boys in developing nations and targeted at preventing violence against women. The title will be a global initiative, with an initial focus in South Africa. The Center was recently awarded a $600,000 grant from the United Nations Population Fund -- an international development agency promoting the right of every woman, man, and child to enjoy a life of health and equal opportunity -- to develop the title. Champlain students went to Cape Town, South Africa to gather information in August, and wrote about their experiences and shared photos from their visit on the Emergent Media Center's official project blog, The students are working on the project in conjunction with the Population Media Center, a Vermont-based organization working across the globe using entertainment-education for social change.
