In Zone One, visitors will learn about the threats we face, and make the right choices as they encounter various problems.
This will also shape one’s roles in contributing to Total Defence (TD). Read about the six pillars of TD – Economic, Psychological, Social, Military, Civil and Digital Defence.
Then take the quiz and see which hero archetype best matches your personality. Pick up the card that represents your hero archetype! You will need this card to find your way in the maze in Zone 2.
Learn about their unique characteristics and then enter Zone 2 where participants can make their decisions and toss a dice (virtually) to determine their next move. The goal is to eliminate Chaos Chimera, a monster who is wreaking havoc everywhere.
Will you be the hero or heroine who saves the day?
In the final zone, ignite your inner TD hero through though-provoking questions. Step into the spotlight to craft your unique hero, pledge to the cause and pose at the photospot alongside fellow heroes. Collect your pin for a job well done!
