Ambassador Piotr Antoni Świtalski, the Head of the European Union Delegation to Armenia, launched today a Next Generation Anti-Corruption Game at the Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, which was created by Tumo and funded by the EU. This event was an opportunity to get acquainted with the demo version of the Next Generation Anti-Corruption Game.

This interactive and fun game aims to raise awareness about the risks of the corruption especially among the youth. It also aims to inform them about the prises they will get if they confront corruption, as they must know that this is a long term investment in personal and social prosperity.

16-20-year-old Tumo students work on creating EU-Tumo joint project’s anti-corruption game with the help of the centre’s experts.

The launching of the game was held under the slogan "Stop the Flow of Corruption". The aim of "Stop the Flow of Corruption" entitled event is to reaffirm that the EU supports Armenia's government and civil society in their efforts to fight against corruption.

Speaking to the guests, Ambassador Świtalski said "Education of corruption prevention and awareness-raising of the youth play an important role in the fight against corruption. Developing and educating a new generation in the values of integrity, democracy and transparency is one of the most powerful tools for ensuring a future where corrupt practices are not part of the normal way of life".
