Estonian 🇪🇪 students of JCGSC arranged a charity event on the 23rd of April in order to celebrate Estonian Veteran’s Day and to support the charity campaign “Let us Salute!” led by the Estonian Society of Wounded Soldiers and Women’s Voluntary Defence Organization (WVDO).

Within the BALTDEFCOL faculty development, Dr. Jörg Muth, the Lecturer for Leadership and Ethics, introduced the colleagues to the strategic resource allocation simulation HEGEMONY. The simulation was designed by RAND Corporation under a contract of the US Department of Defense (DoD) for US flag officers.
The board game simulation pits the US, and in a minor role EU/NATO, against China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea in a race for political influence and military power. The participants learned that without a long-term strategy that considers the ends, ways, and means, success is not within reach.
The pictures show the simulation setup.
