As participants build a fully-planned and intricately-designed Lego city, they also learn to govern it. Children learn about elections, laws, city planning, economics and the environment as they serve on a city council which must make key governing decisions about their city. They work on committees to design their official city flag, design their city's currency and create a constitution of laws. Participants have the opportunity to run for mayor, open their own business, debate city issues and design city buildings.
