    I think it's the decision of transporting the wounded , Because when choosing this decision you have to think with logic, that is, rationality must overcome emotion , also, at the moment of choice, you will be in conflict with time ، because with each passing moment, the wounded lose more blood or their condition worsens, which causes you tension, and tension always causes us problems that will result in nothing but regret, and with this anxiety dominates most of us , and he gets into an unexpected predicament , and also, do not forget the pressure from the families of the wounded, which will make your affection win the war of rationality and emotion , But you, as a human being, will think about your life, which makes you hold back from helping the wounded because you are afraid to put your life in situations that endanger it because you simply want to live!!!!
    And what confirms this is your escaping from your home and thinking about the place you will go to, the difficulties in reaching it, the availability of food and drinking, your needs, and other analyzes, also, if you think rationally, you will find that transporting the wounded is just a step that is not worth taking, because its negatives outweigh its positives, and its success rate does not exceed 5% , and after you choose the option you want, you will find objections from people according to your decision , If you choose to transport the wounded, you will find pressure from your friends to retreat, If you refuse to transport the wounded, you will find objections and harassment from the families of the wounded , and if you give the key to another person, you will feel that you are leading him to death, and you will carry the torment of conscience with you , this will make you end the war of rationality and emotion, if you think about it, there will be pressure after choosing any choice, so you will choose the option that will not endanger other people

      But to me decision of sharing biscuit was the hardest. Each of the three options for sharing biscuit had some side effects. And to take this kind of decisions, we have to be a little bit logical and let the other people know about my logic. Thus, we may convince them.

    The most difficult point that will confront you in making a decision is logic and emotion, as if you are in a war between the storms of logic and the rains of emotions , and this will worry you, making you rush to make a decision, and thus you will start to think about things that did not happen and there is little chance of them happenin , but you worry and become exposed to what is more dangerous than facing the crisis, which is anxiety, and you are the victim of it. Either you control yourself or anxiety controls you , and you have two crises instead of one, which is your mental health and the crisis

    1-Wish decision from the story was the most difficult? Why ?
    The most difficult decision, in my opinion , was weather to take people to the hospital or not , because the weather outside the cave was stormy and very windy , l meant that we would not be able to go out , because of the weather . As a result , if you went to the hospital, people would get sicker , because of the dangerous weather outside
    2_ What makes is difficult to make decisions is an crisis??
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in my crisis is that most people try to get gather information , because they believe that as the information increases, the knowledge increases to make the right decision . It happens, but you have to think what the worst thing can happen to take all the possibilities .
    3_ What can we learn from the game about how decision should be made at COP26?
    That when we make a decision we have to think about the situation in the short and long term, because most of the time people focus on the short term results without thinking about what will happen in the long term . Example : In the game when people decided to go to the hospital they didn't think about the long term and decided that when we get to the hospital, all this torment will be over , but they didn't think that if they went in the stormy weather , they would get stick and tired more.
    Also , we must focus on priorities, and making a decision , we must make sure to arrange priorities and think about the worst before the best .

    Currently, the world is suffering from a significant increase in temperatures, and according to the US National Agency, the month of July of the year 2021 was the hottest in the history of the planet at all , and the problem is that there are not many countries thinking about this issue, and I feel that they will only act when climate change affects them greatly, destroying their economy and causing a large number of victims such as the Corona virus, and this is a huge mistake,as we saw in the story, there was a storm and we were nervous to choose any options and time was running out, so with climate change we have to move quickly, before it confronts us with a force that we can't stand , and in my opinion, the issue of climate change is an issue that cannot be overlooked even with the presence of the Corona virus or any other global issue, because viruses and epidemics will one day come and end , as for climate change, it is a phenomenon that may confront us indefinitely because of our delay in confronting it. Therefore, I think that countries should take precautions in many respects so as not to become chaos when facing this crisis.

        _The state should start an awareness campaign about climate change, its causes and risks, and focus on the views of society on how to confront and limit climate change
        _Explain the greener building plan to them and ask them what problems they think we face when implementing the greener building plan and starting to work on fixing them
        _Imposing penalties on those who contribute to increasing environmental pollution, such as cutting trees, burning waste and other acts harmful to the environment
        _Adopting environmentally friendly renewable energies
        _Starting to stockpile crops so that famines do not occur while the country faces problems in agriculture or the economy
        _Cooperation with friendly countries in providing environmentally friendly inventions

    The hardest decision is going out with friends
    This can be difficult as the weather fluctuates from time to time
    There are many factors that will change when we make an important decision that is COP26, and that decision will greatly affect our lives, so we can learn that entrepreneurs can be useful in stopping any major problem as in the case of COP26

      Not only entrepreneurs but also youth and others need to be aware of this situation. Even if the world leaders needs to stay aware of the future the youth needs to come forward at first. And surprisingly nowadays more youths are aware of climate change than any other age. Because they are the one's who are going to be there in the future. And the leaders need to make sure they leave a beautiful world for the future leaders too.

    The most difficult decision is where should we derive to be safe.
    Because if we are unsafe we can not help others and we may be lost our lives usually the emergency situations are always make the decisions difficult because it's life threatening. So the decision must be true and fast this means that there are alot of factors will affect COp26 because it will discuss important things related with health and safety.
    At last we learn that any decision must be effective and real and built it through the needs of us and others.

      This is one of the tough decisions for sure. And during a storm almost every place is dangerous. starting from safer places above the hill but as they are above the hill during a storm its totally difficult to climb up the hill. The only place near was the crumbly cave near the beach. Although the sea isn't safe during storms too. I completely agree this is a puzzling situation to face.

    In my opinion the most difficult decision to make was to take the wounded to the hospital because if we think about ourselves and take A decision to save ourselves then we'll not be happy and will be criticized by others to be selfish but if we take the wounded to the hospital, then it could be Lifethreatening for us too.

      Absolutely in the case of humanity, I guess we have to make sacrificing decisions. This also includes the part where we had to share the biscuits and it was also like helping ourselves. Because when I tried to help myself by not sharing the biscuit with all people they refuse to share their blankets. I believe the best decision is to make sacrifices. Humanity is undoubtedly the first thing for this race. Again thinking about oneself is the prior decision to make.

    perspectives are persuasive views, and are considered very important because through viewpoints each person tries to convince others of his point of view and reinforce it with evidence. When some points of view are overlooked, it may cause a certain loss because there are some points of view that can be overlooked and are the best solution to some problems.
    There is (COP 26), which is the twenty-sixth United Nations Climate Change Conference for the year 2021 to be held between October 31 and November 12 in the city of Glasgow, and totalitarianism is defined as a concept used by political scientists to describe the state that attempts to impose its authority on society and works to control all aspects of society. Personal and public life as possible and what distinguishes it from authoritarianism is that totalitarianism seeks to control all aspects of life, including the economy, education, art and morals of citizens, and it may be difficult for COP 26 to be inclusive because every country differs from the other in its circumstances, nature and environment and therefore opinions will differ Views and ideas It is possible that some countries will be absent from the conference for some reason, so ideas and views will not be presented through their representatives.
    People who see the same thing do not think about the same thing because each person sees the event from his own point of view.
    And in my opinion COP 26 will take all points of view.

      We could have left the country thinking the mayor is there to help the people of its locality. But still, humanity and emotion are there. Even if we want to go back we cannot leave the family as they were begging for help. Literally this decision was a bit intricate.

    1) The most difficult decision was that of taking the injured people to the hospital. Because there was storm outside and it was unsafe to go out and atleast we were alive in the cave, but on the other hand it was necessary to take the injured to hospital other wise they will loose their lives. So it was difficult to dicide that whose life should be saved, my own or the injured.
    2) All the time different people have different opinion, but the decision stucks when these different perspectives are conflicting. As in the story many times the perspectives were conflicting. So according to me conflicting perspectives make it difficult to come across any decision during crisis. Also Some times the limited resources also make the it difficult to make a decision, as in the case of biscuits in the story .
    3)All these factors will affect the decision making process in COP 26 . For example some leaders will give a solution and the others will find it difficult to execute in their country and this will lengthen the decision making process. Also the richer countries will be able to spend much in executing the solutions but the poorer countries might be unable to do the same.
    4)From the game we can learn that before coming across any decision we should think of all the possible perspectives and then present it before everyone and if everyone agrees than only a decision should be made. Also from the story we can learn that we should always be prepared for extreme conditions.
    Today the world is in danger due to humans and their activities. We should soon do necessary changes in our system of living to save our world from these global crisis like global warming, ozone layer depletion, land degradation, rise in water level, poor quality of air and much more!

      Yes, you are right some matters. But I don't agree with you in the point that, during the crisis we must take everyone's perspective in consideration. And then we should come to a conclusion only "if everyone agrees". This might be possible in the upcoming COP26. But to be honest, in a situation where you have to make a decision very fast; for example, whether you should take the wounded to the hospital or not, if you are going to ask for everyone's view at that moment, it might be vital for the wounded before even you made a decision.

      I suggest that, all should elect a wise person as a leader or decision taker at that situation. All can give their views to the leader and the leader should try to make a good decision. This way the perspective are taken as well as the decision making procedure is fastened.

        I partially agree with your statement,

        But sometimes electing a leader to make such decisions can lead to unilateral decision. So don't you think it's risky?
        According to me perspectives of all should be involved in taking big decision.

        For example , in context of the story , suppose in the story if the people had made a leader and when it was time for a decision regarding the wounded he decides that a particular person will go for the job . According to the leader he is right but there is a possibility that the person who is assigned the task is not willing to do it.

        Also , there is a possibility that the leader will take a decision that their is no need to worry or ponder about the injured ones and no need to take them anywhere putting anyone's else life in danger. This time also he is right in his opinion but some people might be there who will oppose this and will be unsatisfied on this conclusion.

        Though decision making ,involving all the perspectives , is lengthy but still it is better as it provides us with most appropriate and exceptable (by all) decision .

    The most difficult decision was how will, I drive the injured people to the hospital safely, without getting in danger.
    The thing that makes it difficult to make a decision in a crisis is the safety and health of ourselves and others.
    Many of these factors relate to COP26, as it also concerns the health of the people.
    We learn that every perspective matters and the decisions on the COP26 should be fully inclusive.

    I think the decision to share your food with others while your survival depends on it, was difficult, this is very difficult to make a decision when the future outcome is unpredictable. These factors affects the COP26 and what I learned from this is that every factor should be evaluated in COP26 before making decisions.

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why ?
    The most difficult decision,I think was whether to take the sick and injured ones to the hospital or should stay in cave or give my car's keys to someone else because if I drive them to hospital it would be dangerous for me and if I don't go then many people will lose their lives and if I give my car's keys to someone else will he/she drive my car in the storm and will my car be able to be drived next time and we mostly get panic,underpressure and emotional while taking decision so I must not be panic and emotional and took it easy but I didn't had enough time.
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    I think different opinions of different type of people and their different point of views and in some cases there are not only one correct and best opinion but more than one so in that case it might be difficult to take the best decision.
    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Many factors will affect COP26 because health is also included so it is an important topic to be raised specially in least developed states and countries.
    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    In my opinion desicions should be made gently and without getting panic and emotional because if you get panic you think that this is the most difficult decision whereas it might be the easiest...and we should look at the depth of the situation and make a logical based decision...

    I think that the most difficult decision was when there were wounded people in the cave and it was most essential to drive those injured people to the hospital as their condition was critical and they were dying.So, there were three options and we decided to drove those patients to the hospital,but we had to think with logic that if we drove those injured people it might be a bit risky because of the stormy weather!!

    Activity 1
    1- The most difficult decision is not to bring binoculars, because binoculars are what help us to see. If there is any danger, for example, there may be a hole in front of me, I will fall into it, or there may be some danger and I do not see it clearly.
    2- Because making decisions is a set of intertwined steps to reach a specific goal, because those who deal with the decision as a single step undoubtedly make mistakes because making decisions needs study and then choosing between alternatives and then the means to reach the right decision, and all of this does not happen at the time of occurrence crisis, but a quick decision.
    3- There are many factors that will affect, for example, it is possible for some countries to be absent for some reasons or to take decisions that some countries agree on, while others do not agree due to the different policies and opinions of countries Or it is possible that new climatic events will lead to sudden changes in decisions.
    4- Through the game, we learn that we must make a comprehensive study about the decisions we take and which of them is the most appropriate, and also develop other alternatives for these decisions if any emergency occurs, and we can consult with each other about these decisions.

    It is a very difficult situation when people says that take injured people to hospital..It is very difficult to decide that wheather i go or not.But it was also important to save thier lives.So there are three options here to drive own or gave keys to someone or save in the cave.It was so difficult.

    1- taking the injured people to the hospital is the most difficult decision because the storm very strong outside and it's putting thier lives at risk, Although it's very nesscery to take them to the hospital, its so hard to decide between your own life or thier lives.
    2-people are confusing in crisis. They have different perspective, but they don't know which is the most appropriate As the story you're confused between your own life or their lives, also some people horrified from thier decision consequences so you should think well before do decision
    3-I think All of these will affect,according to different perspective such as some leaders will give thier perspectives with regard thier countries conversely other leaders find it hard with regards thier countries
    4-we learn to think well before do the decision think what consequences, take and give all perspectives, we should always be ready for crisis, we should to change our lives in our community to save our world 🌍, becouse our world is in danger due .

    It was not a difficult question,it is ment to be a sacrificial question we must decide whether to show the humanity that lies within us or be selfish .
    For the sake of humanity,we should share the only pack of biscuit because a human being can't do all the things alone at some point we need one and other. We should not be selfish enough to share the pack of biscuit with all of people in the cave.
    If we want to survive we must keep unity among us .
    Cop_26 can spread awareness with the help of our views and opinions. It will urge people to know what is going on in there surroundings and what is good and bad for them.

    Q:WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM THE GAME ABOUT HOW DECISIONS SHOULD BE MADE AT COP_26?
    Ans:We learn that first of all donot make a decision without taking other's perceptions. Because it is obvious that when we take everyone's point of views about a problem then it will be more easier to make a decision at COP 26.
    Perspectives are persuasive views and we should consider them very importantly as we know that others perspectives are important.
    When we have taken perspectives so then the problem is solved and so easily the solution is found!!!!

    I think the most difficult situation was when we have to make the decision that my friend was at the door step and there was stormy weather outside. I have 20 second so I many things to pack but which one was important such as binoculars , water, blanket, money .
    Then I thought logically because of the Stormy weather I need binocular as it was it was important to see the Stormy weather it was becoming closer so I just binoculars.
    So that's why I think that it was the most difficult situation as I have got 20 second only and I also have to pick one things that logically so I decided to take binocular with me as i need it the most .

    The most difficult decision from the story was to choose the place to stay as the people were finding a safe place so it was a bit difficult to make a choice among four places there was a stone castle on the top of hills so it was not that safe after that there was a shop with basement as we know that basements are not safe in these types of situations so it was also not safe after that on the edge of the hill was the mayor's house as it was on the edge of hills it was also not safe so i decided to choose crumble beach caves beacuse they were not on the hills so it was a better place to stay.

    Which decision in the story was the most difficult, and why? The hardest decision for me is to give my car keys to someone else because if I take them to the hospital it will be dangerous for both of us. You won't go, many people will lose their lives and if I give it to someone else they will drive my car in the storm. Therefore, I should not feel panic and emotional greatness towards anyone.

    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis? I think that not all people have the same opinion on this subject but in some cases but for me I have one opinion and that is that it may be difficult to make the best decision

    How many of these factors will affect COP26? In my opinion, there are many factors that affect COP26. Health for all of us is something that is included, so it is an important topic that must be raised in the least developed countries in all fields.

    What should you learn from the game about how decisions are made in COP26? You should research this subject gently without panic because if you feel panic you will think that this is a scary thing. I won't be able to do this thing so be calm in your decisions.

    My most difficult question was to pick between binocular and bottle of water as both are important.There could be shortage of pure water during storms.Again binoculars could save life when you are in the midst of water bodies.

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    The most difficult decision was to decide whether to take injured people to hospital or to stay in cave or even to give car keys to someone else. As the storm was getting stronger it was unsafe to go out of cave , meanwhile life of people was also important. Also it is difficult to trust anybody to give car keys as they might break it. Moreover the time was short as one of injured might lose their life and this causes huge panic. That's why it was most difficult decision to take.

    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    During crises we get panicked and become emotional. It is hard to difficult to decide when you are scared. Moreover when you are being hit with different opinions you become double minded and decisions become difficult.

    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    There are quite a lot of factors. For example different opinions of different leaders, it can cause conflict to implement those opinions. People health is most important factor as it must be given top priority.

    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    Emotional based decisions must be avoided, instead logical and intelligent decisions must be taken. Third world countries who are suffering most must be considered first before making any decision.

    1_ The most difficult was taking the wounded to the hospital. Because there was a storm and escaping from that cliff was a bit difficult, but we had to take the injured to the hospital because they were going to be lost.
    2_ At these times, each person has a different opinion from the other, and the decision changes when the viewpoints of these people conflict, as the story said, if the views are conflicting. And these points of view make it difficult to reach any decision during this crisis and the resources are limited. It is also difficult to save any decision as it is in a biscuit.
    3_ These factors will influence the decision-making process in the 26th session of the parties' influence. As they say, some leaders will present a solution, and others will find it difficult to implement in their country, and this will lead to a smooth decision-making process.
    4_ In the game that we can learn to make the right decision in the viewpoint. We can also learn from the story that we must always be prepared for any harsh circumstance and the world is now in danger because of human activities. We must change the procedures of our living system to save the world from crises

    One of the difficult decisions is to transfer apafient , and the reason is because you are in the midst of great tension and in your hands is a patient whose condition may worsen and it is difficult to control the fear and tension of people in these situations

    Becase in the crisis , you my face my problems , including tension and painc of people in a problem that my solve us , and there are sick orwounded and they my also face problems

    What we laren from the game is that when making dicisions , there musr be wisdom and intellingence , and some problems need some sacrifice

    1. The most difficult decision in my opinion was whether to take people hospital or just stay in the cave because the weather outside the cave was very Stormy and windy .I could not a be able to drive the car in that weather and the injured people would also be harm by the storm. If I give my car keys to someone else he a
    or she would also harm as me if I drive the car. so I prefer to be with rest of the people in the cave the people inside the cave which were healthy and an harm could have provided first aid to the injured one with in the cave.
    2. It is difficult to make decisions in the crisis because during crisis we are in panic and we are short of time so our brain doesn't respond properly.
    3. Many factors will affect COP26 such as:
    Decision making ability of leaders,time management ability,to keep oneself calm at the time of crisis and panic and understanding the feelings of others.
    4. To make quick decisions we should keep our brain calm and we should think closely about all the outcomes of our decisions.

    1) I think for me the decision that was the most difficult one to take was whether to take the injured people to the hospital or not, because the weather was getting worse due to the heavy rain and it was necessary to decide quickly. Among the 3 given options, I needed to find out which of them was the least dangerous as all 3 of them were full of dangers. Because if I drive the car for taking the injured people to the hospital, then there was no guarantee if it was possible to reach hospital as the weather was bad, accidents could've happened costing my life and those injured people in the car. The same might have happened if I gave the car keys to someone else. Again, staying in the cave also could cost the lives of injured people. For all these reasons, it was the most difficult decision that had to be made.
    2) For a person stuck in a crisis situation, the things that often makes it difficult to make decisions are if they start panicking or get nervous at the very beginning. Because emotions and nervousness might overpower logics in some scenarios. Also another thing that can make it difficult is if the people around the person are panicking then it becomes difficult for any person to make decisions since they cannot make others understand the logics properly.
    3) I believe all these factors will affect the decision making in COP26, because in this game of perspectives, I have see that perspectives are very persuasive. Often times, perspectives differ when there are so many people in a room. The leader of one country might propose a solution but the leader of another country might not agree with that as the countries differ in geographic features. Also it might be possible for some countries to implement the decision in their countries whereas for some other countries it might be a bit difficult as the countries also vary in economic conditions.
    4) Just like the game, in COP26, the decisions should be taken based on the geographic conditions and economic conditions of the countries attending.

    1_The most difficult decision was that of taking the injured people to the hospital Because there was storm outside and it was unsafe to go out and atheist we were a live in the cave ,but on the other bandit was necessary to take the injured to hospital other wise the will loose their lives soit was difficulty to decide that whose life should be saved, my own or the injured .
    2_ Because making decisions is asset of inter twinned steps to reach a specific goal, because those who deal with the decision as a single step undoubtedly make mistakes .because making decision as asking Lester make mistakes because making decisions needed study and the choosing between not happen at the time of occurrence crisis,but quick decision .
    3_Many factors will affect cop26,because health is also in clouded so Ionian important to pic to be raised specially in least developed states and donates
    4_From the gametes can't learn that before coming across any decision we should think of all the possible persons times and then present it before every one an everyone agrees than only a decision should be made also from the story we can learn that we should always be prepared for extreme conditions .Today the world is danger duets humans and their activities we should soon unnecessary changes in our system of living to save our world from these global crisis like global warming ,ozone layer depletion ,land degradation,rise in water level ,poor quality fair and much more .

    1.The most difficult decision probably was whether to take the wounded and sick people to the hospital or not.Because when I am deciding what to do the fate of those people are also hanging. And on the other hand it is not possible to go to the hospital at that moment because of the storm but not everyone will understand this.

    2. When the fate or future of other lives are depending on my own decisions it becomes very tough.Because there arises huge tension among the surrounding people and my even slightly wrong decision can bring chaos.

    3.In my thought the factor that is going to be a top notch is to consider the consequences that the decisions can bring.

    4.Decisions should be made with a calm mind and thinking logically without being carried away by emotions. Patience is a key which is really important while making decisions.

    1)Which decision from the story was the most difficlt? Why?

    I think the most difficlt one was the eat the biscuits all alone because if i eat it by myself everyone will be fighting because they want too but was not enough for everyone, if me and my friend eat we will argue about the last one and if me and all the people in the cave ate there will be some people will argue over that will not be able too everyone to eat.
    2) what makes it difficlt to make decision in a crisis?

    I think different opinions of different type of people, How they see it and think of it on some case it will have big fight and thats not okay.
    3)How many of these factors will affect Cop26?

    All these factors will affect the resolution making process in Cop26. For model some leaders will give settlement on the other side people will think it's hard for them maybe because they live in different country or they can't afford it.
    4)What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at Cop26?

    We learn to respect people's opinions if they diffrent or same as our opinions we should respect and should support others.

    Which decision in the story was the most difficult, and why?
    My Answer: The most difficult decision was to take the wounded people to the hospital.
    Why: At first we have to keep in mind, the situation & whether was very much dangerous. As a result, it was quite impossible for anyone to go outside in that situation & take the wounded people to the hospital (because there is a chance of death together).
    Again, we have to keep in mind that if we can't take the wounded people to the hospital then they might die there. So It was very much difficult to answer. But in my opinion, I would try to find some way to cure them by staying in the cave.

    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?

    My Answer: Not only in a crisis but also in difficult situations our mind does not work well or can not perform like other situations. Because in normal situations there is enough time to think and there is no need to fear. But in case of difficult situations or crises, there is a fear of death or something else, also there is not enough time to think.

    _In a crisis a person becomes confused because of the feeling of unsafty ,especially if there is no time to think ,this is why makeing decisino difficult.
    _There are alot of factors can effect COP26 such as : cutting trees and hurmfull smoke comes from the cars .

    1) The most difficult decision was that of taking the injured people to the hospital. Because there was storm outside and it was unsafe to go out and atleast we were alive in the cave, but on the other hand it was necessary to take the injured to hospital other wise they will loose their lives. So it was difficult to dicide that whose life should be saved, my own or the injured.
    2) All the time different people have different opinion, but the decision stucks when these different perspectives are conflicting. As in the story many times the perspectives were conflicting. So according to me conflicting perspectives make it difficult to come across any decision during crisis. Also Some times the limited resources also make the it difficult to make a decision, as in the case of biscuits in the story .
    3)All these factors will affect the decision making process in COP 26 . For example some leaders will give a solution and the others will find it difficult to execute in their country and this will lengthen the decision making process. Also the richer countries will be able to spend much in executing the solutions but the poorer countries might be unable to do the same.
    4)From the game we can learn that before coming across any decision we should think of all the possible perspectives and then present it before everyone and if everyone agrees than only a decision should be made. Also from the story we can learn that we should always be prepared for extreme conditions.
    Today the world is in danger due to humans and their activities. We should soon do necessary changes in our system of living to save our world from these global crisis like global warming, ozone layer depletion, land degradation, rise in water level, poor quality of air and much more!

    The most difficult decision,I think was whether to take the sick and injured ones to the hospital or should stay in cave or give my car's keys to someone else because if I drive them to hospital it would be dangerous for me and if I don't go then many people will lose their lives and if I give my car's keys to someone else will he/she drive my car in the storm and will my car be able to be drived next time and we mostly get panic,underpressure and emotional while taking decision so I must not be panic and emotional and took it easy but I didn't had enough time.
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    I think different opinions of different type of people and their different point of views and in some cases there are not only one correct and best opinion but more than one so in that case it might be difficult to take the best decision.
    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Many factors will affect COP26 because health is also included so it is an important topic to be raised specially in least developed states and countries.
    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    In my opinion desicions should be made gently and without getting panic and emotional because if you get panic you think that this is the most difficult decision whereas it might be the easiest...and we should look at the depth of the situation and make a logical based decision...

    1. The very first choice. I wanted to pick the water bottle. But later on my friend rushed up to get her binoculars and we were late. I think I'd rather feel safer in a storm with a bottle of water and other villagers than my friend being a superstitious person who's going to argue over a packet of biscuit with me later on.
    2. In a crisis, human instinct tells him to take on the very first challenge on his way, that is surviving the disaster. But in doing so, many forget the importance of the bigger picture. This results in rash decisions and might even cause fatality.
    3. The most important thing in the story ,that'll effect the decision making in COP26 2021, is power of perspectives. In a given issue, if concerned authority see it with different mindsets and make a comparison between the pros and cons of each possible solutions, they can come up with brilliant solutions. Another thing is being rational and thinking of the broader spectrum before indulging in petty and selfish interests of ours. That's also going to effect the decision in COP26 this year.
    4. In my very opinion, I feel like the decisions made in COP26, 2021 should be done calmly, with a long term goal in mind to fulfill.

    1. In my opinion, the hardest decision was whether the injured would be taken to the hospital or not.It was a very bad situation to make the right decision.My life would have been in danger if I had taken them to hospital.There was no guarantee that we would be able to get through the storm.If I had given that responsibility to someone else, it would not have been so different.On the other hand, injured people could get sicker.If the car key is lost then we can no more go to the hospital with the rest in the storm and sick body.But if we wait until the storm stops, we can safely drive to the hospital. if we wait until the weather changes this will create a better situation than the people injured in the storm and getting stuck with the car.It could have put their lives at risk, which is a lot more if they were in the cave. So, staying there was a good decision in my opinion.
    2. A lot of things in a difficult situation make it more complicated when you are making any decision.It is often seen that the rest of the people cannot agree with me and Sometimes it is just the opposite.So at that time a decision has to be taken in the mind of both the parties where both the parties agree. Limited stuffs also creates a pressure. At this point , to survive,we have to make the initial decisions in a very good way.If we make a mess then next time we may have to suffer for it. if there is no way to take the help of a wise person, then it becomes difficult to take a decision. Many times the amount of people causes complications while taking aby decision specially because of their different perspectives.Some will look at it with logic while others will look at it emotionally.
    So, that makes it very difficult.
    3 i think all of these factors affect COP 26
    .For some small problems it is not possible to solve any big problem .Leaders can discuss the problems of their respective countries and find solutions for them.But in poor countries there are some problems that need to be fixed first.Or they can not implement it for the financial condition of their country. Some countries may be late to make its progress of it for many reasons. Some self-centered decisions can have an impact in some cases
    4.Before taking any decisions, we have to thin about all of its possibilities and We have to look at the matter from different perspectives. We have to share the ideas with all . It will help them understand whether they have to decide with reason or emotion. We have to think deeply and calmly that helps to make a good decision even in a bad situation.And we should not be afraid because if we can make the right decision at the right time, we can get rid of the danger.

    1. Decision of taking wounded people to hospital was most difficult.
    2.We have to think rationally in this case. According to our perspective we might feel staying in cave would we safe for us and for all but those people who are wounded or whose family members are wounded they might feel that going to hospital would be better, they think emotionally rather that thinking rationally.
    3. It was a story of storm hitting the island. Storm is a result of climatic change.
    4. We learn that while making important decisions in such circumstances we must think rationally and critically rather than thinking emotionally and while making decisions we must think about others also and we should not be selfish and we should make decisions that are good for all and should help people.

    The most difficult decision I have taken is transporting the wounded. When you think rationally, it is the most difficult decision you may take, because in the moment of choice, you will be in conflict with time, because there may be a moment when the wounded lose more blood or their condition worsens. This leads to tension and tension and diseases, as this may reduce the work of the immune system. This makes a person more likely to catch colds or other more serious diseases. This tension affects the brain with excessive tension, disturbs peace of mind, reduces focus, and results in bad remorse and sometimes we fall into an unexpected predicament. Also, do not forget the pressures of families of the wounded that will make a conflict between your mind and your emotional But as a person, you will think about your life, which will make you retract from helping the wounded. If you back away from helping the wounded, you will find objections and harassment from the families of the wounded. If you think about it, there will be pressure after choosing any confusion, so you will choose the option that does not endanger others.

    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    Well, the most sacrificial decision I think was wheater to take the injured people to the hospital or just stay in the cave or give the car keys to someone else. Because it was stormy outside and unsafe for me to go outside. Meanwhile, the lives of the people were also a considerable factor here. Again, it was hard in such a condition to believe someone and give the car keys. Also, that would be risky for him to go outside too. Moreover, I didn’t have plenty of time to take the decision. Many factors were in my mind. But I had to choose one being under pressure and panic where emotion was related too.
    2. What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    I strongly believe that the fear of making a wrong decision affects our decision the most. Speaking from the side of human psychology, we don’t get panic on the issue of wheater we are taking the right decision or wrong decision; rather we emphasize the point that “What will happen if I couldn’t choose the right one?” And that’s when we get more tensed and more confused. Most of the time, there is nothing called a good decision or a bad decision. There are more options to choose which are not bad also. So, confusion arises choosing the best one. Some other factors are also considered like the decision of many people and different perspectives, limitations of resources, etc.
    3. How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    In my opinion, many factors affect COP26 (as health is also included in it); especially the decision-making process. The leaders will give their decisions considering the pros and cons of possible solutions but the least developed countries will find it difficult to implement in their countries with respect to the developed countries.
    4. What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    From the game, we learn to take any decisions thinking about the possible perspectives and with the consent of the majority in the long term. Proper utilization of the resources is also mandatory. It also teaches us to be prepared for extreme situations.
    Today, the environment is at stake due to human activities. So, we must solve the problems for a better living and to give our future generations a habitable place for living. For this, global problems like climate change, overpopulation, healthcare problem, rise of water at sea level, etc. should be solved as soon as possible with our joint effort.

    1) The most difficult decision was to take the injured to the hospital. Since there was a storm outside and it was unsafe to get out of the cave, we were at least alive in the cave, but on the other hand it was necessary to take the wounded to the hospital and on the other hand they would lose their lives. So it was difficult to kill the one whose life should be saved, me or the injured.
    2) At all times, different people have different opinions, but the decision falters when different points of view conflict. As in the story many times, the views were conflicting. So, in my opinion, the conflicting views make it difficult to reach any decision during the crisis. Sometimes limited resources also make it difficult to make a decision, as in the case of biscuits in the story.
    3) All these factors will influence the decision-making process at COP 26. For example, some leaders will offer a solution and others will find it difficult to implement in their country and this will prolong the decision-making process. Richer countries will also be able to spend a lot implementing solutions, but poorer countries may not be able to do the same.
    4) From the game we can learn that before making any decision we must consider all possible viewpoints and then present them in front of everyone and if everyone agrees to make the decision only. We can also learn from the story that we should always be prepared for extreme circumstances.
    The world today is in danger because of humans and their activities. We must soon make the necessary changes in our living system to save our world from such global crises as global warming, ozone layer depletion, land degradation, rising water level, poor air quality and much more!

    1- In my opinion, the hardest decision was to get people to the hospital in this cold weather 2-Most people think that the more information he has, the more knowledge he has to know the decision But you have to think of the worst
    3-That is, when we make a decision, we have to think about it The decision is an example when they decided going to hospital They didn't think about it anymore We must know and reflect on the decision we make always

    Answer 1

    In my opinion the most difficult decision to make was to take the wounded to the hospital because if we think about ourselves and take a decision to save ourselves then we'll have a strong guilt feelings if anything happens to the injured person and also will be criticized by others for being selfish but if we take the wounded to the hospital, then it could be Lifethreatening for us too. And it is such dilemma that I want to cure the wounded person but don't want to hurt myself.

    Answer 2.
    In reality we are often puzzled to pick a decision from a number of ways. Most of the time when we are not sure about the consequences it becomes quite difficult.
    Sometimes it is difficult to manage the thoughts in our head with the feelings of our heart . This is the hardest case in choosing decision. My options is we should never be inferior to our conscience. Whatever the situation is we should be in the side of humanity, which brings worth for people, even if there is our own risk

    Answer 3
    I passionately believe that all these factors will affect the decision making process in COP 26 . There is a proverb "Many men ,many minds".For example some leaders will give a solution and the others will find it difficult to execute in their country because of geographical location, economic conditions or something else. Though different perspective seem to be efficient for different countries making decisions will be lengthy. However if the convenors can come up to a solution and execute that properly,
    definitely it will fetch an splendid outcome.

    Answer 4
    Through this game we develop a skill of making decisions. Situations may not always in our favor. But we never be panicked, emotional and selfish in case of taking decision. We should comprehend the situation deeply, listen everyone's opinion, think about every possible perspective, and be sincere about others problem. Moreover , we need to be a far-sighted person to make a bitter season better.

    For me, the most difficult decision was to take the wounded to the hospital because there was a storm, but on the other hand, it is necessary to transport them as soon as possible so that they do not lose their lives, so it is difficult to eliminate the ones we have to save .. At all times people have different opinions, but it is difficult to choose the appropriate option when there is Many perspectives and sometimes limited resources make a crisis like biscuits in the story.. these factors affect the decision-making process in the sixth session, for example, leaders will propose solutions and at the same time it will be difficult for others in their country to implement it.. we learn from the game not to choose any choice before thinking about it well and with its severe consequences and presenting it to others, and if they all agree to implement it, and also that we must be prepared for the consequences that may occur

    I think taking injured people to the hospital is a dangerous decision , but in my opinion distributing the biscuits on people in the cave was the most complicated decision. If a little boy loved to distribute biscuits , they should be thankful to him, they should owe him. What the people on the cave react was shocking. Food is not enough , the boy knows that ofcouse , but what wasn't he know was the complicated and strange psychology of those people.

    HERE IS MY APPROACH :-

    So the decision of whether or not to stay back with local people was the most difficult to make. After all the difficulties of the storm, I wanted to reunite with my family for emotional and mental support; however, the decision to leave amid the vandalized transport facilities was not less perilous than the idea of staying back. The statement that stuck with me was, ” they won’t even know we are missing” . The statement meant that the outer world was not aware of the havoc brought in by the storm on that tiny island, which also implies, any hope for external aid was too idealistic. I thought someone ought to go out to bring this situation to their notice and if not us, then who would be the best fit for it? What made it difficult was the anticipated reactions of the locals and the unanticipated danger involved in travelling right after the storm. Even the thought of me appearing as an egotist was mortifying but convincing people of your good intentions is hard. With bare minimum food supplies, a pair of binoculars and a physically drained body, It’s not a very mindful decision to set on a journey. Lingering between moral duty and innate survival instincts.


    Urgency and the need to stay inclusive make it difficult to make decisions in a crisis. Usually, a crisis impacts a large group and we have numerous ideas and suggestions. The tough part is to form a comprehensive solution without deliberately demeaning someone’s role in it. A solution that takes care of everyone’ general requirements in a short period. Handling perspectives is like dealing with a double-edged sword. We never know what might offend someone and what might resolve the whole problem.


    Both are unequivocally major factors in COP26. We need a breakthrough in the climate change crisis. The depletion rate is menacing and prodigious damage beyond repair does not spare us a lot of time. This crisis affects every current and future inhabitant of the world, and it’s impossible to seek all opinions. Though diplomatic and international talks like COP26 do allow us the chance to be inclusive. The catch her it is to rise beyond our benefits and focus on 'US'. Even before New York or Mumbai submerge in water, many islands of Indonesia and the Maldives would be underwater. But perspectives of such not so superpower countries can be nullified and their right to an equal chance of survival can be overlooked. Two superpower nations can strongly oppose each other's ideas thus, bringing all the efforts to a halt.

    Decisions need to be thoughtful, inclusive, quick and considerate of our lack of knowledge about unprecedented challenges.

    1) From the story, I think the most difficult decision was taking the injured people to the hospital on that crisis moment. As the weather was stormy and risky outside it was quite tough to shift the injured people to the hospital in that very short time where we both of us may have our life risk .Apart from these, as we had no control over the changes of weather and had no proper idea of the duration of this crisis, I could not assure that I along with the injured people would reach the hospital safely within definite time.Among these 3 options, every of them contains some hazards which leads to a risky consequence. If I stayed in the cave , I might save my life by pushing them towards death and if I or someone else took the responsibility of those injured people then many lives were at risk .So , the issue here is to save one's own life or the life of others which makes it more difficult.
    2) Generally making decisions will always be difficult because it takes time and energy to weigh other opinions. In this case it is more difficult and stressful on the basis of critical situation and shortage of time.Most of the people become panicked on the crisis time and due to shortage of time they start to think emotionally instead of being rational and realistic. Besides we may not give importance thinking about all the worst possible possibilities rather we prefer thinking about the positive and only a number of outcomes. When the number of people increases, their point of views also increase which makes disagreements. In this story the varieties of perspectives of people made the crisis more difficult for making decisions.
    3)I think all of these factors will affect COP²⁶ . In every step of story there is a factor of changing situation with the respect of our perspectives. Due to the changes of perspectives and decisions all the consequences are also changing and I think these will affect COP²⁶ regarding making decisions. Some countries will emphasize their issues and give solutions while the other will find it out difficult .
    4) We can learn so many things from the game regarding the decisions should be made at COP²⁶. Like it is not necessary to grant all the opinions as a decision but listening all of them with importance and attention is required. Besides we learn to make quick decisions at the time of challenging situation without panicking. We should not overthink and become stressed during the crisis rather we should explore options, communicate, think all the alternative consequences and paths considering advantages along with disadvantages for making a sensible decision.

    1) the most difficult decision was taking the injured people to the hospital. The storm outside increases the danger to be injury also, so may we cannot reach the hospital safe. Moreover, if they were not going to the hospital they may die. How difficult to decide to save your life or other lives.
    2) Make decisions in crisis is the most difficult thing at all because you have few options and you must select one of them and unfortunately all of options are complicated and difficult as finding the biscuits in the story and how to behave.
    3) All factors will affect the COP26 because always the decision making need the power of perspectives to survive
    4) We can learn from the game the importance of planning for every condition, and pre plan for unexpected conditions. Then make analysis for all suggested solutions and select the most appropriate one. all global crisis increases their effect if all world would not move on and find the solutions

    The most difficult decision was to take the injured to the hospital. When both the wound and the weather (environment ) is getting worse , the common decision will be to give him /her first aid or to let him/her suffer. But what about humanity ? If I would not take him to the hospital, the person would die and this would be an unforgettable tragic moment which I would always regret in my life.And this would also give me anxiety,stress and mental depression. I would regret alot. But due to unfavourable circumstances , I must stay in the cave. Though this decision sounds like a selfish decision but deep inside I am feeling pity for the person but the environment compelled me to do so. Though I chose to stay in the cave in the game, I am still baffled by my decision.

    From the above game, the first thing I learned is to not panic even during worse situations. As panicking will just lead to anxiety and pressure. And the 2nd thing is that there is always many options in every situation and it is with us to make the best decision. 3rd thing is we should be smart and confident while making a decision because the decision that we make can be beneficial and detrimental to us. 4th thing is to wait for the situation to mitigate patiently . 5th thing is to help others when the situation is favorable or okay than before. 6th is to listen to all the perspectives rationally with respect and cordination.
    Beside the above mentioned learnings, I have learned a lot of skills and knowledge . Those are my main perspectives.

    1) As I see it, the most difficult decision was whether to listen to the friend and leave or listen to the family and stay. If we consider logic it was better to leave the place listening to my friend. So that we can reach our own home safely at first. Later comes the case of family. They were injured and they needed help. It comes with emotion because helping people is my duty even if I am a tourist. So from my side, this was quite difficult than the rest.
    2)Making critical decisions in times of crisis is hard. Because decision making is something that requires concentration, focus. It is difficult to focus on processing possible outcomes and choosing when your mind is clouded with fear and the thought that you might be in imminent danger.
    3) Different countries in this world have different perspectives and they hardly match with each other. What I good for one country may be bad for another country. So while taking decisions maybe the countries in COP26 will face these challenges. As if some countries may want to reduce the use of coal whereas for other countries they might face problem in maintaining their economic balance. So all kinds of opinions should be respected.
    4) From this game of perspectives we learned about a decision might be taken in several ways. And every decision has good and bad consequences. Even in a crisis moment, we have to take the decision with a peaceful mind. These decisions should be acceptable to all as well as everyone's opinion needs to be taken into consideration.

    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?

    Answer: To me , choosing one thing to pack was the hardest , as not everyone thinks alike. People have their own way of thinking and execution. We must put ourselves in their shoes first. Then we can realize their reasons behind choosing a different option. We might think that it's useless to take a petty thing called as lucky charm with us at such a dangerous situation. If we go deeper ,we will understand that it is important to be mentally strong in a perilous situation . Many may think that we can take things which would help us survive longer . And they aren't wrong either.
    At that Moment , we need to think and execute fast. It is important to choose something that would help us survive longer. But I would have chosen that lucky charm then. As my friend will stay with me at that life threatening situation ,so we must both stay strong and mentally support each other.

    2. What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?

    Answer: In such a dangerous situation, it's really hard to take a important decision within such short time by considering all the pros and cons .
    3. How many of these factors will affect COP26?

    Answer: From this story ,we can understand that at COP 26 we will have to deal with numerous perspectives. These perspectives will make it harder to take decisions.

    4. What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP 26?

    Answer: we can learn that we will have to be very considerate while taking decisions. As one program/step can be easy for a certain country but hard for another.

    1) The most difficult decision was that of taking the injured people
    to the hospital. Because there was storm outside and it was unsafe
    to go out and atleast we were alive in the cave, but on the other
    hand it was necessary to take the injured to hospital other wise
    they will loose their lives. So it was difficult to dicide that whose
    life should be saved, my own or the injured.
    2) All the time different people have different opinion, but the
    decision stucks when these different perspectives are conflicting.
    As in the story many times the perspectives were conflicting. So
    according to me conflicting perspectives make it difficult to come
    across any decision during crisis. Also Some times the limited

    resources also make the it difficult to make a decision, as in the

    case of biscuits in the story.
    3)All these factors will affect the decision making process in COP
    26.For example some leaders will give a solution and the others
    will find it difficult to execute in their country and this will lengthen
    the decision making process. Also the richer countries will be able
    to spend much in executing the solutions but the poorer countries
    might be unable to do the same.
    4)From the game we can learn that before coming across any
    decision we should think of all the possible perspectives and then
    present it before everyone and if everyone agrees than only a
    decision should be made. Also from the story we can learn that we
    should always be prepared for extreme conditions.
    Today the world is in danger due to humans and their activities.
    We should soon do necessary changes in our system of living to
    save our world from these global crisis like global warming, ozone
    layer depletion, land degradation, rise in water level, poor quality

    of air and much more!!

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    For me the most difficult decision was whether to take the injured ones to the hospital or not. If I go for the first choice and drive the injured ones to the hospital, then I will lose my life. Again if I go for the second one and do not take them to the hospital, then they will lose their lives. In one hand my safety was striking me for not going and on the other hand my conscience was telling me for going or taking them to the hospital. It was very hard on my part to make the decision for either choosing myself or sacrificing myself.

    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    A crisis affects a large group of people. So while taking decision during a crisis it becomes important to keep everyone’s welfare and contentment in mind. For this, everyone’s participation that is inclusivity in taking decision is needed. But the conflict among the diverse perspectives of different people attending the event makes it difficult to come across a decision.
    Again in case of crisis there remains urgency for taking a decision. So it becomes necessary to take a quick decision within a short and limited time and resources. As a result, sometimes we fall in such situations where we get stuck between our need and conscience; emotion and logic. And it becomes very hard to make a decision coming out of the war between these things.

    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    I think all these factors will affect COP 26. In one hand it needs inclusivity and on the other hand it needs a quick decision. But due to different perspectives, when one nation may feel okay with a specific solution, the other nations may have problems with that same solution. Again basing on the resources, a decision may seem to be easy for the developed countries while it may seem hard for the least developed ones. As a result the whole decision making process can get prolonged or can even come to halt.

    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    From the game we can see that we may come across a difficult situation unwantedly and suddenly which may compel us to take a quick yet competent decision, such as- the case of Climate Change. At that moment decisions should be made by analyzing all the possible perspectives and outcomes along with respecting and being considerate of others opinions about both the crisis and decision. Also we should try our best to make a flexible decision so that we can cope up with the unprecedented challenges ahead brought by the crisis.

    In my opinion:

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why ?
    The most difficult decision,I think was whether to take the sick and injured ones to the hospital or should stay in cave or give my car's keys to someone else because if I drive them to hospital it would be dangerous for me and if I don't go then many people will lose their lives and if I give my car's keys to someone else will he/she drive my car in the storm and will my car be able to be drived next time and we mostly get panic,underpressure and emotional while taking decision so I must not be panic and emotional and took it easy but I didn't had enough time.
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    I think different opinions of different type of people and their different point of views and in some cases there are not only one correct and best opinion but more than one so in that case it might be difficult to take the best decision.
    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Many factors will affect COP26 because health is also included so it is an important topic to be raised specially in least developed states and countries.
    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    In my opinion desicions should be made gently and without getting panic and emotional because if you get panic you think that this is the most difficult decision whereas it might be the easiest...and we should look at the depth of the situation and make a logical based decision...

    The first question we face is-' Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?' In short, the answer is the decision where we needed to decide weather to take the wounded people to the hospital or not and how to take them if taken. There were couple of options we had; one was to take the patients by driving the car ourselves, or to give the keys to another person and let him or her drive or to just stay in the cave. On top of that, the road to the hospital was flooded and there were higher chances that we won't be able to let the patients be taken to the hospital. Hence, regardless of what decision we take, we won't be able to let the patients be driven to the hospital. If we decide to let other person to take our key, we risk not only the patients' but also that person's life. And if we self-drive, then we risk our life. And if we sit silently, then we will be attending others' criticism for showing such selfish-minded attitude. Besides, as every minute passes, the wounded ones will be suffering grave pain and their situation might get worsen as the time passes. This decision includes not only logical thinking, but also needs our emotional stability in order to make the best decision. From that sense, this was the most difficult decision to make. The second question we are asked is-'What makes it difficult to make decision in a crisis?' In brief, it is to choose the best decision with an approach to satisfy everyone's demand as we learn from their perspectives. Yes, it is not possible for one to satisfy everyone's 100% need
    , but the thing that can be made is a positive approach where we subtract the maximum bad outcomes and try to listen and care others' perspective or the reference view. Though it is very complex considering the factors of logical thinking, emotional stability and correctness while making such a decision, but we can always give our best effort and give our maximum and get the required minimum in such situations. Then we get the question-'How many of these factors will effect COP26?' Well, many of the factors will have a significant affect in COP26. The most mentionable ones might be health factors, loss of life and property and environmental stability. The last question in this activity is-'What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?' Honestly, a lot of things can be learnt from this little but thoughtful game that what decisions should be made at COP26. Firstly, every voice should be heard, every perspective should be considered and as so should be emphasized. If be marked, today's youth have a vital role in making decisions that would shape the activities of COP26. Secondly, we must have some primary shelter and security in all the renowned islands and such tourist destinations. In the story, if we had something like this, then our decision making process would have been easier and more convenient. Plus, we didn't need to face any burden of wounded people or injuries if there were such shelter and security- the point where we needed to make the most difficult decision. Also, COP26 should look for a better approach of how to tackle such natural calamities. In conclusion, grand decisions should be made with a view of peace and prosperity as we listen to every single opinion. Every soul counts, and as we listen to them, they are valued.

    This game is too interesting but in most of the cases we are not sure which decision will be right and which will be wrong.Through this game we have been able to learn the circumstances we may face during a stormy weather. But in some points I became so confused. Like at the time of helping other injured people , I found that the perspective was different from person to person.
    But via this game,we can develop our skill in decision making as well as co operating with others. As all of we have different perspectives, so working together will be more important in a tough situation.

    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    ans: according to me the most difficult decision was to choose where to go because according to the slides and others perspective crumbly caves at the beach was the place to go but if you really thing about it during a storm the worst place to be is near a sea shore ,,, and here the shelter was not only in a sea but also it was a crumbly cave i.e easily breakable ,,,but i really wanted to choose the mayor's house near the wood since its near the woods it was surrounded by trees and trees helps us protect from firm storm so for me it was quite absurd that the local people actually chose a crumbly cave at the beach instead of the mayors house ,,,,

    and to choose between listening to your friends and helping the family was really hard too,,, because if you think about it after fighting with life and death we really need some peace and comfort of our family but then again these people lost their family and houses so yeah there's that.

    ans: For me choosing between your head and your heart has to be the hardest because during a crisis it is really important to take rational decisions instead of emotional ones,,, and sometimes to help people you need to help yourself first,,,self preservation is the first law of nature , it may come out as selfish at first but if you really think about it you cannot help someone if you yourself is not physically and emotionally stable,,,therefore having to chose yourself over others for the greater benefit during a crisis makes it really hard to take decision.

    1)Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    Answer: To me the most difficult decision was to take the injured in the hospital. Let's think about the situation if I drive & take the injured to the hospital my life would be in danger again if I don't go their life might be in danger. And if I give my keys to someone else their life could be in danger. So thinking about the situation I think this was the most difficult decision.
    2)What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    Answer: Taking such an important decision in a short time makes it difficult to make decisions in crisis. Honestly in crisis like this we are already pressured again people make different decisions regarding their own perspective. So, taking a correct decision thinking about the later consequences is what makes makes it difficult.
    3)How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Answer: From the discussion all these factors affect COP 26. Decision making is the key to survive in this world. There are different crisis occuring around us all day, so we need to think about the pros & cons & based on the situation make the decision.
    4)What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    Answer: We've learnt to be patient in such kinds of crisis & be considerate towards others. We've learnt that we might face unexpected situations anytime so we should be aware & take preventive measures for our safety & for people around us.

    (1) I think the most difficult decision is whether should I do- take the injured into the hospital or give keys or stay there safe. It is quite difficult to take this decision because if I remain alive I can do a lot of things for the people .But if you drive the injured people to the hospital in this crisis, and I get injured there will be no benefit-he will not also get the help and i will also become injured. Again If I stay in the cafe save ,the other people will die. And then comes the question about humanity. someone is dying in front of me and I am sitting quite- It will be really very difficult for me to tolerate .
    (2) Mainly in a crisis different people will suggest different options ,they will show different logics. Obviously, all the time whether it is crisis or nor we should do the best decisions according to the others thoughts and the majority of the same thinking of the people. But if it is crisis it is quite difficult, because during this time we feel a great pressure into our brain, and most of the times our brain can not give the correct thinking to solve the problems.
    (3) I think all the all the factors of these will affect the COP26. Because here, different perspectives and situation based factors are given which will help us to survive in the crises.
    (4) We can learn a great lesson from the game. First of all we learn that before taking any decisions give your brain some time ,feel easy and don't be so afraid. Because if you got afraid your brain will stop to work and you will not be able to do anything . So be patient and make the correct decision by your fresh mind

    Proper crisis communication can address a variety of potentially harmful behaviours during a crisis. Although it may be difficult to measure that impact, using good communication to persuade people to avoid negative behaviours during a crisis will save lives , prevent injuries and lessen the misery people experience.
    The perspectives are also conflicting and thus the situation becomes more tough to take a proper decision in that very short time

    1) For me the most difficult decision was whether to take the injured people to hospital by myself or giving my keys to other people. Several factors like less time,storm, people's opinion, uncertainty, risk etc added more difficulty as we had to consider them within a very limited time. As natural there was a battle of logic and emotion while making the decision. A part of me really wanted to help while another part was concerned about my own safety. Besides the fact that I am a tourist there without knowledge of direction towards hospital. But the locals have a different perspective than mine , to them as the owner of the car I should drive the injured people to hospital. Together all these made this decision most difficult.

    2) The uncertainty and fear during a crisis makes it difficult to make decision. We all have different perspectives and opinions , some are logical while some are based on our emotions. Choosing among these option is hard. But the time limitation makes it way more difficult. Making the right decision in crisis is very crucial and can be very stressful . People with different perspective may create conflict in the decision making process.

    3) The game shown us how all of us have different perspectives and way of thinking. This makes it clear how COP26 will be affected by it. Different leaders will have different opinions and will hold own country's interest in heart. But finding a common ground and balancing so that everyone's demand is met can be the solution in decision making in COP26.

    4) We learned that by putting everyone's interest and wellness in decision making. We also learn that all decisions have to made very carefully as one wrong decision may lead to more disastrous effect.

    1-which decision from the story was most difficult? Why?
    -- I think the most difficult decision was of taking injured people to the hospital or staying in the cave as the weather outside was getting worse and it was not safe to go out similarly time was running out and injured people were near to death so it was really difficult to choose whose life should be saved, of those injured or my own which was also in risk if i drove them to hospital.
    2-what make it diffucult to make decision in crisis?
    -The thing that makes it difficult to make decision in crisis is people's different opinions. As in crisis everyone wants to save his own life and try to give his own opinion. So it is very difficult to make right decision at that time moreover limited resources are also the cause of difficulty in making the right decision.
    3-How many of these factors will effect COP26?
    -Many factors will effect COP26 like conflict in opinions, management of time, health of people and limited resources.
    4-what can we learn from the game about how decision can be made at COP26?
    -from the story we learnt that while making decision we should consider opinion of everyone and planing is the most essential thing that must be done while making a decision. Moreover we should respect everyones opinion and should not be over sensitive and selfish.

    1.According to me, the most difficult decision was created centering the injured people.We had options but in each and every option we need to compromise at least one side .If I go with the injured person my life will be in danger and whatever people can say..none can put own life in risk..and in that stormy weather it won't be safe for the injured person also.. and if I don't go with the person his life will be in danger.so this decision may break our humanity..on the other hand giving the keys of car to any other person I can't put his life in risk and it may cause harm to my car also..so according me this was the most difficult decision in the story

    2.In our life we need to face various kinds of difficulties with various characteristics..in the story in many times we got a very little time to take any desicion...at that time we should focus on the practical life.. sometimes we worry about what people will say about my desicion..but as the coin has two sides..each and every thing in the world has positive and negative side..so we should not think about negative rather we should change the perspective of thinking and be positive.. people may say many things because their perspective of thinking is different and that act as the Main barrier in the desicion making path ..but decision will be mine and consequences of that will also be mine so thinking in positive way and basing on the reality we should take desicion ..So according me the perspective of thinking makes it difficult to make desicion in crisis

    3.Almost all the factors will affect COP²⁶..here in each and every step we are gathering new experiences,new decisions along with new situation.. let's think about the packet of biscuits..as a precautionary measure we all should store dry foods and be prepared to face such natural disasters..if I had some more packets of biscuits or any other had any other dry foods. no problem would occur there...but lack of initiative made the situation difficult..so we all should be prepared for any adverse situations with necessary measures...

    4.We have learned so many things in this interesting game.the situations may not be in our hand but if we want we can make it perfect in any way.. these difficult situation have helped us to learn how to take decision when the time is very short..this helps us also to give the knowledge that we all should be prepared to overcome any type of situation...and in that situation our decision should be also proper.

    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?

    As human beings we all consider what's good for us and our family in the first place. So I couldn't decide whether to help them build the city or get back to my sweet home with my friend. But then again I remembered unity is what made us the best of all creatures. So it was difficult to deal with such a decision but I decided to help the people to build their storm-ravaged city and from my perspective I think I made the right decision.

    2. What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?

    We need to make tons of decisions on a daily basis but it gets hard to decide when we are going through a crisis because we feel whatever decision we will make might be the wrong one because we lack self confidence and that's what makes it so hard.

    3. How many of these factors will affect COP26?

    As I have mentioned earlier we always put forward our benefits, our perspective before thinking about what will be good for everyone. In COP26 all the countries might try to put forward their interest in the first place just like I thought of returning to my sweet home with my friend. COP26 might turn to a Clash of Perspectives if not the countries put aside their self interest and be united. Though it will be hard to make a decision that will be good for all of us but if we remain united then we might come up with a fruitful result.

    4. What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP 26?

    At COP26 decisions must be made swiftly after considering opinions and perspectives of all the countries . In COP26 patience and dynamism should be put together while making a decision.

    Question:
    Which decision of the story was the most difficult and why?
    Answer:
    I believe,transporting the wounded was the most difficult decision in the story.The reason would be,in that situation,your rationality and emotions will be in a conflict.
    Your ethics will tell you to help them and your sense of survival will drive you to stay in the cave,feeling that the negatives can outweigh the positive.So,you will be in a dilemma and will feel indecisive.So,I personally think, it was the toughest decision to make.


    Question:
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    Answer:
    I think,to make a decision,it takes time and energy to weigh your option.To be confused and feeling indecisive is a part of the process.But in crisis,we feel this urgency to make the right decision and also in the story,your decision will not only have an impact on you but also others.For that,everyone will try to impose a decision, feeling that it’s best according to their perspective.But the tricky part is there is no absolute right or wrong decision and there can be more than one right thing to do at a given situation.

    Question:
    How many of these factors will affect COP26?

    Answer:


    I guess,all of the factors will affect COP26.Because in a heterogeneous group, it is very unlikely that people will have the same opinion.It's observed in case of the story as well as COP26.In the story,there were people with different opinions and situations.On the other hand,in COP26, there will also be many countries with geographical differences and non-identical climatic conditions.In the story,sharing biscuits with the people of cave seemed the best and humane act to do at that given situation but eventually it was seen that none of the decisions would have turned out right.Because,there may not be an absolute correct decision and there maybe more than one right thing to do at times,as previously mentioned.I learned, how to act upon or take decision in a short period of time,under pressure in a moment of crisis.In COP26, Climate change which is also worldwide crisis will be discussed and the heads of the state will have to agree on a coordinated action to tackle climate change. So,we can see that there are many factors that affect COP26.




    Question:
    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    Answer:
    I've learned numerous things about how decisions should be made at COP26.
    If i name a few,it would be:
    1)Though the future is unpredictable,
    we should always take long term decisions and should evaluate all the options.
    2)Like in the situation of transporting the wounded,if emotionally driven,people will take them to the hospital but we should also think about that the weather can eventually be worse.The same applies for COP26.Evaluating the perspective and opinion of all the heads of the state,a coordinated action should be taken based on a long term.

    2.There goes a saying-'Many men,many minds'.But larger pools of knowledge are by no means a guarantee of better outcomes, if the knowledge isn’t utilised properly.In both cases,all the opinions and perspectives should be considered and decision should be taken based on the diverse judgement and expertise.

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    After fulfilling the whole story, from my perspective I think while making the decision where to take rescue was the hardest. Why? Because while making the decision for where to take rescue one has to think a lot and think faster. One has to consider a lot of things too, like; which place will be the safest, or consideration of time to reach the rescue place with calculation of the disaster. So taking the decision where to take rescue is the hardest in my perspective.

    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    The emotional status in that situation makes it difficult to make the decisions during the crisis. For example; while we have to make the decision of sharing biscuits with people we cannot share it with all people but at some point we also feel bad for not giving them. But we have to keep ourselves in good condition at first. So the emotional aspect hits hard and makes it difficult during making the decisions.

    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    The motto of COP is uniting the world to tackle climate change. After finishing the story, many factors from the story do affect COP26. But that differs from place to place and country to country. As different places have different components and are prone to different disasters. So according to different places with different decisions these factors will affect COP26.

    In the story we were given different situations where we had to make decisions during a disaster for ourselves. During making the decisions I realized all the decisions have to be made considering oneself first because keeping your own safety and fulfilling duty towards your own should be first. After ensuring one's own place, decisions regarding others' betterment is to be made. So thus the decisions in COP26 are to be made like this.

    The most difficult decision was that of taking the injured people to the hospital. Because there was storm outside and it was unsafe to go out and atleast we were alive in the cave, but on the other hand it was necessary to take the injured to hospital other wise they will loose their lives. So it was difficult to dicide that whose life should be saved, my own or the injured.
    2) All the time different people have different opinion, but the decision stucks when these different perspectives are conflicting. As in the story many times the perspectives were conflicting. So according to me conflicting perspectives make it difficult to come across any decision during crisis. Also Some times the limited resources also make the it difficult to make a decision, as in the case of biscuits in the story .
    3)All these factors will affect the decision making process in COP 26 . For example some leaders will give a solution and the others will find it difficult to execute in their country and this will lengthen the decision making process. Also the richer countries will be able to spend much in executing the solutions but the poorer countries might be unable to do the same.
    4)From the game we can learn that before coming across any decision we should think of all the possible perspectives and then present it before everyone and if everyone agrees than only a decision should be made. Also from the story we can learn that we should always be prepared for extreme conditions.
    Today the world is in danger due to humans and their activities. We should soon do necessary changes in our system of living to save our world from these global crisis like global warming, ozone layer depletion, land degradation, rise in water level, poor quality of air and much more!

    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    All the decisions in this story were difficult but there is nothing more precious than human life.
    I think the most difficult decision was to stay in the cave or take injured to the hospital. If we take them out, our lives could be in danger because there is a strong storm outside. But if we stay inside many people will lose their lives.

    2. What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    Whenever a person has a problem, he gets depressed and it becomes difficult for him to make any decision.
    Therefore, while taking a decision, we have to overcome our emotions and think wisely.

    3. How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    • People usually tend to think and act for themselves and their family instead of the people around them.
    • Effects of the decisions taken at the start of crises goes along with it till it is resolved.
    • Outcome of our decisions would not always be in our benefit, sometimes we regret our decisions but we should learn from these mistakes and try to act and shape our future decisions.

    4. What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    As the COP26 is for the whole world, the decisions are to be made for the betterment of the whole world, not just for some single person or community, and at the end it will definitely benifit each and every single person and community.

    Q1: Which decision from the story was most difficult ? Why?
    Ans: The most difficult decision in the story was drive injured people to hospital. Especially, for high traffic hospital areas or shifts with a higher volume of patients, particularly physician to hospital relationships. Staffing concerns are also a organizational problem. Population health management can be categorized under technological challenges, although the latter is more general. The former refers to the problem of making patient data accessible via various resources.

    Q2: What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crises?
    Ans: During a crisis, Govt. and public agencies must decide an critical issues. These can be a many kinds. The disparities between demand and supply of public resources are much bigger, the situation remain unclear and volatile, and the time of think, consulant , and grain acceptance for decisions is highly restricted. There are simply too many hurdles that separate a critical decision from its timely execution in the field.

    Q3: How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Ans: The 26th session of the conference of the parties (COP 26) to the UNFCCC was originally scheduled to take place form 9-19 November 2020, in Glasgow, UK. The change in dates had been anticipated following a decision, on 1 April 2020, to postpone the event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At that time, the COP Bureau announced that: "In light of the ongoing, worldwide effects of COVID-19, holding an ambitious, inclusive COP26 in November 2020 is no longer possible. Rescheduling will ensure all parties can focus on the issues to be discussed at this vital conference and allow more time for the necessary preparations to take place. We will continue to work with all involved to increase climate ambition, build resilience and emissions."


    Q4: What can be learn form the game about how decision should be made at COP26?
    Ans: The lessons and the building of character has been further undermined by headlines about professional law and demand ever bigger paychecks. Sports strongly reinforce certain personal characteristics, persistence and self-discipline. Amateur sports provide a nonthreatening place for competition, with clearly defined rules and low managing stress. A COP26 decision could promote continued international collaboration on policy, finance, technology and so on to support with developing, updating and implementing their decisions.

    The most difficult decision was when choosing who will eat the biscuit, because if I eat it alone, everyone will remain hungry, and if my friend and I eat it, others will starve, and if you divide it among everyone, it is not enough for us and we will all starve.

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why
    ‏‎‏In fact, all the decisions that have been made in the story are difficult, and each of them draws us to a reality (that it could happen to us one day).
    ‎‏The most difficult was anywhere we could escape the storm
    ‎‏It reminds me of our life in Gaza, in the war, even though we are in our homes thinking where we will go if the house is threatened with bombing..
    ‎‏For a person to abandon his home is a difficult thing, but circumstances force us to do so. It is not only difficult in a game or in an activity, but it is a future and it can be a new beginning, as (I) helped in the activity of those on the island.
    ‎‏Home is not a place…it’s a feeling.

    -Wish decision from the story was the most difficult? Why ?
    The most difficult decision, in my opinion , was weather to take people to the hospital or not , because the weather outside the cave was stormy and very windy , l meant that we would not be able to go out , because of the weather . As a result , if you went to the hospital, people would get sicker , because of the dangerous weather outside
    2_ What makes is difficult to make decisions is an crisis??
    What makes it difficult to make decisions in my crisis is that most people try to get gather information , because they believe that as the information increases, the knowledge increases to make the right decision . It happens, but you have to think what the worst thing can happen to take all the possibilities .
    3_ What can we learn from the game about how decision should be made at COP26?
    That when we make a decision we have to think about the situation in the short and long term, because most of the time people focus on the short term results without thinking about what will happen in the long term . Example : In the game when people decided to go to the hospital they didn't think about the long term and decided that when we get to the hospital, all this torment will be over , but they didn't think that if they went in the stormy weather , they would get stick and tired more.
    Also , we must focus on priorities, and making a decision , we must make sure to arrange priorities and think about the worst before the best .

    1:Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    The most difficult decision to take the patient to hospital or either .Because the weather was too much stormy outside the cave. In this situation ,I was not reached at hospital in that time and may patient can dead on the way due to loss of blood.  That's why it was most difficult decision to take.
    2:What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    Urgency and the need to stay inclusive make it difficult to make decisions in a crisis. Usually, a crisis impacts a large number of people and we have a lot of ideas and suggestions.Handling perspectives is like dealing with a double-edged sword.
    3:How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    In my opinion, many factors affect COP 26 especially the decision-making process. The leaders will give their decisions considering the advantages and disadvantages of possible solutions but the least developed countries will find it difficult to implement in their countries with respect to the developed countries.
    4:What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    From the game, we learn to take any decisions thinking about the possible perspectives and with the consent of the majority in the long term. Proper utilization of the recourse is also necessary. It also teaches us to be prepared for extreme situations. Today, the environment is at risk due to human activities. So, we must solve the problems for a better living and to give our next generations a habitable place for living. For this,
    . Mental health.
    . Climate change.
    .Biotechnology risk.

    The most difficult decision was to transport the wounded. Because it is about more than one soul and you have to protect yourself and stay in the safe area.
    Fourth question: I learn from the game that each option has pros and cons that affect those around you.
    2 You should consider the opinion of others.
    3 To take responsibility despite the circumstances

    While playing the game we had to face different circumstances. In those times we got so confused with the things we should do and which we shouldn't.
    At one time there was a situation where we had to take the injured people at hospital.
    So helping people is humanity we all know.But at that time the environment wasn't that safe to take the people at hospitals for treatment. As a very stormy weather was there,so at first we have to ensure our own security. We can't just let ourselves facing a denger. So here helping the people and going to hospital will be definitely a foolish work. What we can do is give them primary treatment with what we have at that time.
    Nextly once there was a moment when other people agreed to go to hospital but there was no means of transport. Then giving the keys will be a better option as you don't want to take a risk. It will be a good option to help them by giving the car keys if anyone of them wants to help.
    But i Don't think at that situation where everyone has moved in a safe place , no hospitals will have their doctors and other stuffs present there to treat the injured.So at that time we have to stay at the safest place and until the circumstance is ok,we cannot move from the shelter.
    As well as we have to respect everyones decisions equally so we can survive from the situation safe and soundly.

    1) What decision from the story was the most difficult ? Why?
    Answer:
    In my speculation ,the most difficult decision was fetching the wounded people.
    The reason being this is a situation where people deals with uncertainty. Normally your virtues will drive you into the perception of self endurance likely to stay in the cave what was not the case here . That`s why it was a resilient decision.
    2)What makes it difficult to make decisions in the time of crisis?
    Answer:
    Taking any decision is all about calmness and patience along with taking time.
    The state of being panicked and not feeling confident about what you are doing navigates you towards confusion . Interpretation of different people creates kind of an illusion which is why people gets puzzled.

    3)How many of these factors will affect COP-26?
    Answer:
    I think all the factors will affect COP-26. As an example, if a leader give a solution, it is not necessarily the case that others might concede and this will delay the decision making method. In COP26, there will also be many countries with cultural,geographical differences and various mindset. So,there are a lot of factors that affect COP26.

    4)From the game we can learn that before coming across any decision ?
    Answer:
    Here`s several things I learned:
    i) How to act upon or take decision in a short time period under pressure in a moment of crisis.
    ii) Though we can`t say anything about the future but we should take decisions which might be fruitful for us also in the long run.
    iii)A decisive mentality should always be prepared thus we can come to a wise verdict anytime.

    In my opinion, the answer to the given questions are:
    1/ans: The most difficult decision in the game was which thing we had to choose before leaving the house.
    2/ans: Emotions and our confused brain make it so difficult to make decisions in a crisis.
    3/ans: I think all of these factors will affect COP26.
    4/ans: We learn from the game that sometimes our 1 small decision can change everything. So we have to make the correct decision at the right time or else we have to suffer a lot.

    1-The decision about taking injured people to hospital as it was about my own safety alone with saving injured people. If I only think of myself then the situation of the injured people may get worst. And if I think of their safety then I may get into trouble.
    2- Making correct decision in a crisis is very important as one wrong decision may lead towards danger when there are people with their own perspectives it becomes difficult to make the right decision. So in such case we must evaluate the perspectives and hit the correct decision.
    3- Basically each and every factor will affect COP26
    ★If one takes water bottle it will be helpful to get relief from thurst as none was aware of the storm that for how long will it exists.
    ★For pen and notepad, I guess there is on effective role of these.
    ★Binoculars_this may be ones lucky charms but when it's dangerous to spend time over any thing that will not be a way to fight against any storm.
    ★Money_ where it's a great question that whether you will be alive or not then money becomes a valueless thing in the world.
    ★Blanket_this maybe taken as one may get cold in storm and blanket can be a safety measure.
    #In search of a safety place:
    ★Crumbly beach caves_though it may look dangerous as it's a beach but the cave is stronger than any construction to face a strong storm.
    ★Stone castle_Though it's strong but it's also man-made construction and a strong storm may affect it which is not safe.
    ★Shop basement_storm will obviously bring flood for heavy rainfalls and shop basement will sink so it's not safe.
    ★Mayor's house_Its not stronger than the strong storm.
    #Biscuit sharing:
    ★Eating the biscuits alone is not a wise decision as when I will be in need of anything other people will not provide any help.
    ★Sharing with friends, if I argue with anyone then that friend may not help me.
    ★Its a wise decision to give a piece of biscuits everyone as we all must fight against any crisis unitedly.
    #If I choose to go with the decision of my friends it would be an inhumane work as we will leave all the helpless people behind. So I think I shouldn't go with the decision and wait in island till all the destroyed things get newly constructed. Thus perspectives may bring blessings and also sometimes curse for anyone.
    4- Decisions are key to success or failure. Making the right decision is quite difficult but not impossible. So from different perspective we must think practically and also should not think of one's own interests only. It's all about being together and unitedly fight against anything and thus we can remove the darkness and can enlighten us.

    There are several obstacles that directly or indirectly affect decision-making. Some of them may be reasons that prevent you from reaching the right decisions or not defining your career path clearly, and these obstacles include:

    You do not have enough information about the study paths and which career path they lead.

    You do not have enough information about the different professional fields.

    Do not trust your ability to complete and succeed in the course requirements and assignments; To reach the career path you desire.

    You have many, many desires, and you cannot decide which path is best for you.

    You don't have any desires for any particular path, so you don't know where to start.

    You're not sure of your values, so don't know which paths might be of interest to you.

    You are afraid to choose a certain path and your choice will not be correct.

    You don't know which jobs may be available to you if you choose a particular path.

    There are people who recommend a particular path for you, but you are not sure if this is the right path for you.

    She always faces difficulties in making decisions, regardless of her field.

    1- The most difficult decision in my opinion is to make the decision quickly , drive people the hospital , and take responsibility for them in this bad weather because with this decision I will take responsibility for saving other people .
    2- What makes your decision in a crisis is that you think about all the bad possibilites that can happen when you make any decision and you must find a solution for each.
    3- All factors in decision - making will affect the cop26 of the conferece of the parties where som leaders will present a solution , and in many countries ther will be several difficulties in its implementation or finding appropriate solutions .
    4- I learned from the story to be careful when making any decision ,especially when it comes to other people the second thing I've learned is to share with other when making a decision and not to think selfishly.

    4-Decision making is in an essential skill that every person will need to use at some point in their, and to prove that you are good at making the best
    decision you will need to make the best possible choice as well as being a ble to provide reasons to support your decisions and we must prioritize and think of the worst before the worst before the best.

    First, we must think positively and be optimistic, and try to search for anything to make a shelter or bed from simple things found on the island, and then try to make food from anything, for example, bird eggs found on trees, mollusks, oysters, seaweed and fish, making sure that they are not toxic; If the shells and mollusks are hard and difficult to open, they are generally edible, and vice versa. Then make sure to cook the food before eating it, especially crusty fish, to kill the toxic parasites that may be attached to it. And set fires from the wood of trees, and we can also use rainwater for drinking. As for predatory animals, if a (bear) confronts you, for example, you have to pretend that you are dead to be able to escape from it. As for (the dog), you have to represent that you are not afraid and beware of throwing anything at it, but rather deal with it If you do not see him, he will turn away from you

    Decision-making is the cornerstone of the administrative process. As it includes the activities of the administration, and all its functions, for example, when the administration performs its control function, it takes decisions to determine the appropriate criteria for measuring business outcomes, the necessary adjustments to the plan, and the care to correct errors if they exist, etc., and because of what Modern administrative systems face complications in their objectives - where there may be conflict between them sometimes - there has been an increase in the problems facing administrative leaders, and accordingly the need to take decisions that would confront these problems has increased.

    1.The most difficult decision was to take the injured or sick people to the hospital or we should stay in the cave or give my car's keys to someone else. Because if i drive the car so it was very dangerous for me and if i don't drive the car so the peoples will lose their lives. But if I give the keys of my car to someone else so will she/he will drive the car in the dangerous strom. We mostly get emotional, panic and underpressure while taking decisions. So i do not get emotional, panic or underpressure and took this easy but I don't have enough time.
    2. All the time different peoples have different opinions. But the decisions stuck when these different perspectives were conflictings . As in the story many times there was perspectives conflicting. According to me conflicting perspectives make it difficult to come across any decision during crisis.
    3. Many factors will affect COP26 because health is so important topic to be raised in countries specially. And all the developed states.
    4. In my opinions decisions should be made without getting panic and emotional. Because when you get emotional you do wrong decisions . And if you get panic your feelings of anxiety, the connection between your brain and pre-frontal cortex — the part of the brain responsible for decision – making — maybe weakened. And you also think in panic situation that where should be this difficult situation get easiest.... and then we should looked at the depth to the situation and make the logical decision of the situation.

    From my point of view, the most difficult decision that I can take is who I should help first. Is it my family, the injured, the children, or my father? The most difficult thing for a person to make decisions is stress and the mind’s preoccupation with thinking about more than one decision. This makes you unable to focus on one decision. Only we will learn from this situation how to control the mind and self and try to solve problems one by one and teach us to take responsibility for making decisions in our lives

    The most difficult decision was to take the wounded to the hospital. Since there is a storm outside, and it will be very dark and there may be predators blocking our paths that will be very scary, and we were at least safe in the cave, but on the other hand it was necessary to take the wounded to the hospital but we couldn't, but this This does not mean that we leave the injured, but we will try as much as possible to help them and relieve them.
    There are many people who have different views and sometimes they do not agree on one opinion, but we must respect the views of others and try to engage in dialogue to find a solution to the problem.

    Seeing from another person's perspective helps you to understand things in a different light and opens up the path for a whole lot more of understanding and tolerance. Sometimes things appear to be big,but it actually is something small.
    Why is it important to understand others perspectives?
    This helps us understand their beliefs, feelings, experiences and intentions. We can empathise and think about things from another point of view. It also allows us to move flexibly between our own perspective and another. ... A good example here is how we experience other people's emotions.

    What is the benefit of using perspectives?
    The ability to experience things from other people's perspectives also improves your ability to understand and gain clarity on your own situation and helps you to communicate your unique vision to others more effectively.
    What are perspective taking skills?
    It has been defined as: “The ability to understand how a situation appears to another person and how that person is reacting cognitively and emotionally to the situation.”

    Now coming to the context of the game we can see that there are 5 scenerios.in case of the first one the toughest part was choosing between the binoculor or the water bottle. For me the toughest part was what should I do with the people rather I took them to the hospital or I should have stayed in the cave .
    Another problem might arise about while making the decision , should I had went out hearing to my friends either I stayed listening to the mayor.
    In this cases we can see the difference between the opinions.But the thing we have to keep in our mind that we have to respect others opinion and value it cause we donot know nothing about their inner situation .
    But in type of that situations when all are going with some kind of mental pressure we must keep come to take a decision and judging others one.

    How CoP26 is related to this and what we can gain?
    The matter of fact is health issue is hugely related to environmental change. There are many things that vary country to country.the first thing is geographical location,population and many more .we have to take a decision and to keep in mind about the community.sometimes the fact humanity can come across our decision .sometimes our one can not be accepted but we have to move on.

    Lasty thing about everyone and humanity to take a decision.thing about the best option and keep calm.

      But I think logic is the most important thing in this case. In some situations of the game we had to go against someone who was in a great trouble. In normal sense it does not seem that we were working for humanity but in that situation it was logical.
      In critical situations, we have to take each and every decision logically and let the others know about our thoughts.
      And if we can express our decision logically to others, everyone will be satisfied

    Question 1. What is the the most difficult decision in this story? why?
    The most difficult was to shift the injured person to hospital because outside the cave the storm was very extreme and the car could sink into the flood and if we stay in the cave, the person will die if we give the keys to someone else then he will drop the keys in the flood. So, I was really confused to make this decision.

    Question 2. What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    In a crisis, usually the success or the failure of the response is not based on decision of team and if the make any immoral decisions it steers the response to negligence and it is then condemned to downward. All the teams working on the similar incident and are inclined to make a series of trivialand crucial judgements.

    First of all, I must say this game is an excellent example of viewing from different perspectives in case of any decision making. One can really realize the effects of viewing from different perspective by playing this amazing game. There were few questions regarding the activity we just completed. I'm going to go through them one by one.
    1. Which decision from the story was the most difficult? & Why ?
    The most difficult decision, in my opinion , was the decision making of whether to drive the people to hospital by myself or by someone else. Because the weather was not favorable in that very moment. There was a risk of much worse situation outside the cave due to the storm and at the same time, the injured people needed to be treated as quickly as possible. So, to stay safe inside the cave? or to do the work that needed to be done? the tension was real.The dilemma between emotion and responsibility is what made this decision making difficult.
    2. What makes is difficult to make decisions in an crisis??
    In my opinion, in any situation, being restless rather than staying calm makes any decision making situation difficult. if we stay positive and can take decision by thinking patiently before any decision making,we can easily understand that very situation from everyone's perspective and it would be easy to come to any comclusion.
    3_ What can we learn from the game about how decision should be made at COP26?
    From my point of view, the game is an excellent way to make people understand the importance of viewing from everyone's perspective and also about how to prioritize things incase of any situation. I personally learnt a lot from the game. in times of decision making, we should always see the whole scenerio from everyones' perspective. In that way, the decision taken, would be much for beneficial for everyone and everyone's opinion could be taken in consideration while taking the final step. We can side by side learn about how to prioritize different things incase of any decision making event. We should always take the decision that will be helpful for the majority amount of people.

    Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    Answer:
    From my point of view, the most difficult decision I had to take was regarding taking wounded ones to the hospital or staying in the cave. Giving someone else the key was never a choice if I am fully fine and healthy. Secondly, if I think of staying in the cave for the sake of my own security then it will be a very selfish act while others were suffering. Lastly, I can help the wounded ones by taking them to the hospital and become everyone’s hero.
    Because from my perspective, to be able to help others in need and danger is the real meaning of life, and this is what differentiates us from animals and makes us humans. Logically, taking the wounded ones was also correct. Therefore taking the wounded ones to the hospital was the most difficult decision from my point of view.


    What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    Answer:
    In the case of making the decision in a crisis, logic and emotion make decision-making tougher. Because many a time we value our own security and profit instead of greater help. In the game, there came a stage about sharing biscuits. That time, one could enjoy the whole packet of biscuits, while on the other side, can just share with friend or everyone. It is wiser to share the biscuits with everyone, by this not only a good number of people can be helped, but also we are symbolizing our humanity by this act. Yes, in the end, one baby wanted more biscuits. But in that situation, ensuring little snacks for everyone was more important than the baby’s need.
    Therefore, in a crisis, from my point of view, prioritizing logic over emotion is very important. Thus, making the best decision can be possible.


    How many of these factors will affect COP26?
    Answer:
    Many factors from the given situations will affect COP26. Like humans, different people have a different perspectives. We may think about taking the wounded to the hospitals as an example. If we just stayed in the cave, then the wounded would remain untreated. We must think about which decision will have a better impact in both the short and long duration. We did not know whether the water level would increase after we started for the hospitals. But if we stayed in the cave, we are not even taking the step to save those wounded ones. So decision-making after thinking about mass people will affect COP26.
    Different countries will have different situations and states. But what matters is making the right decision for the masses of people rather than thinking about their own profit.


    What can we learn from the game about how decisions should be made at COP26?
    Answer:
    From the given game, we have learned about several matters. Such as:
    1. We have learned about viewing a situation from other people’s perspectives.
    2. We have also seen that we must prepare ourselves for any circumstances and make a decision as soon as possible which will be fittest for everyone.
    3. Different people will have diverse perspectives. That does not mean that we will do everything. It means we will listen to everyone’s opinion, respect those and make the decision which will be helpful for all.


    The condition of mother earth is worsening day by day due to anthropogenic activities. It is high time we prepared ourselves for the future days to come by taking the necessary steps viewing the problems from different perspectives and make decisions that will be favorable for all.

    1. I think the most difficult decision was to take the injured people to the hospital from the cave, because at that time the weather was adverse and if I go outside my life would have been in danger. But I had to take my life at stake to save the injured people of the cave otherwise we may had lost some lives. So it was the most difficult decision to take among all of them.

    2. Decision making becomes a lot difficult in a crisis, especially when a number of people have different perspectives and the decision must be taken within a short and limited time. And there may be some perspectives which may conflict to each other. So on my opinion the cause behind becoming taking decisions difficult is taking different conflicting perspectives and having a short time for sorting them out. We can't make everyone happy with a decision, but we must ensure that no one is harmed for that.

    3. The factors which are mentioned all of these will affect in COP26. As in this story there were people with different opinions and situations. On the other hand, in COP26, there will also be many countries with geographical differences and non-identical climatic conditions. Again according to COP26, we have to take decisions in short period of time to get rid of the climate crisis which may occur suddenly, and we learnt about taking the most efficient decision within a short period of time here. So according to my opinion all the factors will affect in COP26.

    4. From this story I have learnt that during adverse situation we must know how to take a decision which will be effective and helpful for a long time knowing that the future is unpredictable. At the same time there will be different perspectives from different people which may be conflicting to each other, we have to take necessary steps so that we can take a proper decision which will be helpful for everyone.

    1.Which decision from the story was the most difficult? Why?
    The most difficult decision in this story is to drive the patients to the hospital because outside the cave it is a flood so car could not ascend on much water and in cave the injured patients will die so this is really a puzzlement situation
    2.What makes it difficult to make decisions in a crisis?
    In extreme cases, the success or failure of the response is not always based on the decision of groups and if they make any wrong decision the response will fail..... all team work on same event and make a series of small and big the decision
    3. The factors which are mentioned all of these will affect in COP26. As in this story there were people with different opinions and situations.
