Cooperation Games

The Cooperation Games are the “serious games” on the challenges of cooperation, a competition for solving concrete cases encountered by NGOs in the field, all organized by ULB-Coopération!

It is an annual competition in teams of students, all masters combined, to build and propose together avenues for innovative and sustainable solutions to questions concerning themes of health, agri-environment, entrepreneurship, and critical citizenship in international contexts.


  1. Develop interdisciplinary teamwork, systemic analysis, and oral presentation skills.
  2. Engage in proposing innovative and sustainable solutions to international issues concerning health, agri-environment, entrepreneurship, and critical citizenship.
  3. Expand your network and meet professionals from the development cooperation sector, the private sector, the academic world, and other passionate students.
  4. Build the best solution as a team with a view to competition and emulation
  5. …And receive meaningful gifts!


The teams work for a day to resolve their case. They are supported by professionals in the sector to encourage their reflections, particularly those related to cooperation. The teams are also coached on public speaking.

At the end of the day, each team orally presents their innovative and sustainable solution to a jury of professionals from the private, academic, and development cooperation sectors.



Prizes that represent the ethics of our program will be awarded to teams depending on their results.
