When human beings congregate – whether in meetings, public places, urban environments or learning contexts – there is a need for management of the emotional content of the milieu. In many situations this is a personal and private task and its enactment does not intrude on others. In simulations this task is – to varying degrees – deferred to the facilitator. When simulations and game-based activities are used for social change purposes a specific set of (usually) unspoken assumptions must be identified and controlled for. This paper explores the role of the facilitator in regard to the knowledge and capabilities required to successfully engage the diversity of interests and embedded assumptions which shape and inform the actions of all those present (including themselves).
