Ivan Marovic, Serious Games
Ivan Marovic is one of the founding members of Otpor, the Serbian political student group. Ivan was an engineering student at Belgrade University and one of the student organizers who helped bring down Slobodan Milosovic. He was one of the most public of the organization's members, speaking often at rallies and marches. He was drafted into the Yugoslav military forces a few days before the September 24 election and served with the equivalent of the coast guard in Belgrade.
Ivan has since been involved in exporting student democratic movements around central Europe and was a key player in Ukraine's Orange Revolution. Ivan recently partnered with a US company called BreakAway Games, that teaches players how to use strategic non-violent resistance to force regime change.
Ivan continues to work with Otpor and is a trainer for The Center for Non-Violent Resistance in Belgrade.
