UNODC’s Education for Justice (E4J) initiative is currently accepting applications for funding from institutions that are interested in creating non-electronic games to educate secondary level students (aged 13-18) on the issues of crime prevention, criminal justice and other rule of law aspects. Civil society organizations, academic and/or research institutions may apply for a grant of up to USD 10,000. Applicants from any region of the world may apply. The resources shall be used by the successful candidates for the development and testing of non-electronic games and should involve secondary level students as well as educators in the process. The deadline for submission of proposals is 6 August 2017.

Proposals should focus on at least one of the following issues:

  • Crime prevention and criminal justice;
  • Corruption;
  • Organized crime;
  • Human trafficking and migrant smuggling;
  • Firearms;
  • Cybercrime; and
  • Terrorism.

Through this grants scheme, E4J will promote the cooperation between organizations, students and educators to come up with innovative tools to teach on and learn about these issues. Although individuals are ineligible to apply, UNODC suggests that applicants involve game developers in the design process.
