TEDGlobal 2011: Social media game aims to end extremism
by Jane Wakefield
A social media game with Arab super heroes at its heart has been launched on Facebook.
The man behind the project, Suleiman Bakhit, hopes that Happy Oasis can create positive role models for children who might otherwise be enticed by extremist views.
The game launched this week and has already attracted 50,000 followers.
Newly appointed TED fellow Mr Bakhit spoke about his project at the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh.
