Europe has become the centre of Global diversity, populated by a huge diversity of economic, political and social immigrants and migrants and annually visited by millions of tourists. In 21st century Europe, many cultural, ethnic and religious groups must live and work together. However, such integration is not always a smooth process and cultural differences can lead to social stresses and sometimes outright conflict. Providing an educational experience where such issues are explored is difficult in the traditional classroom environment. However, AI and games offer considerable potential for experiential and enjoyable experiences that could impact upon children’s cultural understanding.
