Globally Collaborative Environmental Peace Gaming (GCEPG) with a globally distributed computer simulation system, focusing on the issue of environment and sustainable development in developing countries, is to train would-be decision makers in crisis management, conflict resolution, and negotiation techniques basing on “facts and figures.” To realize this, I worked on the proliferations of data telecom infrastructure and email to various countries, and demonstration and testing of hybrid technologies with “Global Lecture Hall (GLH)”TM videoconferencing spanning globe. We are now forging ahead to create Global University System (GUS), which will supply game players from around the world. With global GRID computer networking technology and Beowulf mini-super computers of cluster computing technology, we plan to develop a socio-economic-environmental simulation system and a climate simulation system in parallel fashion, both of which are to be interconnected in global scale. This paper briefly describes the history of the GCEPG project and its future direction.
