2.5 Localization and Instantiation

Localization and instantiation are essential components of The Great Game of Lionsberg, as they enable players to adapt the game's Prototype & Ideal to their unique local contexts and communities. This process helps ensure that the game remains relevant, accessible, and engaging for diverse participants, while also fostering a sense of ownership and empowerment among players.

Localization refers to the process of tailoring the game's principles, values, and goals to the specific needs, priorities, and characteristics of a particular community or region. This might involve adapting the language, cultural references, or examples used in the game, as well as identifying local values, challenges and opportunities that resonate with players.

Instantiation, on the other hand, involves putting the game's principles and goals into practice, by designing and implementing concrete actions, projects, or initiatives that embody the game's values and contribute to the co-creation of the New World. This might include community-based projects, social enterprises, educational programs, or policy initiatives, among others.

Key steps in the localization and instantiation process include:

  1. Community Engagement: Engage with local stakeholders, including individuals, organizations, and institutions, to gather input and insights, and to build a shared understanding of the game's principles and goals.

  2. Contextual Analysis: Conduct a thorough analysis of the local context, including the social, economic, political, and environmental factors that shape the community's needs, opportunities, and challenges.

  3. Adaptation and Customization: Revise and adapt the game's Prototype & Ideal, as well as its language, cultural references, and examples, to ensure that it resonates with the local context and is relevant to the needs and priorities of the community.

  4. Action Planning: Develop a localized action plan that outlines the specific steps, projects, or initiatives that players will undertake to instantiate the game's principles and goals in their community.

  5. Implementation and Monitoring: Implement the action plan, track progress, and evaluate the effectiveness of the localized actions and initiatives, making adjustments as needed to maximize impact and maintain momentum.

  6. Sharing and Learning: Share stories, experiences, lessons, and best practices with other players and communities, to foster a culture of learning, collaboration, and continuous improvement within the global network of Lionsberg players.

Through localization and instantiation, The Great Game of Lionsberg enables players to bridge the gap between the game's global vision and their local realities, fostering a sense of empowerment, ownership, and agency in the process of co-creating the New World.
