SOLIDARITY, EMPATHY & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT

main

topics

Our awareness workshop series focuses on:

- Increasing knowledge about forced migration, refugees, diaspora, genocide and international policies;

- Exploring refugee stories and needs;

- Deepening an understanding of empathy, humanitarianism, and civic engagement.

 

We also provide information on how students can take action to improve the lives of others, whether it is by volunteering on the ground or destigmatizing the word “refugee”.

our

method

We used various methods of non-formal education to involve the students throughout the workshops. The lessons are flexible and can be adjusted according to the age groups. We employ a range of interactive online tools and group exercises, often with the involvement of refugees and international volunteers.

To emphasise the importance of empathy, the lesson involves both simulation activities and board games. Interactive activities help the students imagine what it might be like to be a refugee themselves, with the aim to break stereotypes. The mix of creativity, fun and in-depth thinking makes the classes successful, while students develop their own ideas about how to support people in need and how to analyse problems and their root causes.

our

goal

It is increasingly difficult to keep up with the complexity of global issues and crises, from global pandemics to wars and conflicts. It can be tempting to play a passive role in the world around us if we are not directly affected by these events. We aim to educate and motivate younger generations to take action, to stand up against injustice, to practise solidarity, to celebrate diversity, and to embrace the concepts of equality and empathy.
