Interactive Center for Peace is a place where people can interact with virtual reality applications and games. These tools simulate situations in daily life in which learning about better ways of coexistence in the public space and education for peace are developed.

This company will create rooms and spaces for interaction where visitors can be immersed in everyday situations of coexistence in which, through play and entertainment, they can reflect and generate new forms of coexistence that are free of violence. For example, it will have a simulator for driving under the influence of alcohol so that people see the risk involved driving under different degrees of intoxication. The simulator allows you to put yourself in the shoes of a pedestrian, a cyclist, a motorcyclist and a car driver on the public road and shows the most frequent errors of each role.

The technologies included in the Tech for Peace program are already fully tested in educational processes in the business and leisure area. However, much remains to be explored in the field of education, such as the improvement of coexistence in public spaces and education for peace.
