Pedagogical Tools on Diversity, Anti-Discrimination and Minorities

In order to combat discrimination, racism, xenophobia and to address the difficulties and benefits of diversity, awareness work is of paramount importance. For this reason, the Institute for Minority Rights has developed a set of pedagogical tools on diversity, anti-discrimination and minorities aimed at young people, children, adults, teachers and educational operators. Learning in an active, playful and creative way allows participants to get in touch with anti-discrimination and diversity issues in a playful and interactive way and, at the same time, promotes social, personal and relational skills.


Board Game “The House of Common Values”

The Board game “The House of Common Values” allows to explore through dialogue the Common Values, as indicated in Art. 2, EU Treaty (Freedom - Democracy - Equality - Rule of law - Human rights - Minority rights - Human dignity - Pluralism - Non-discrimination - Tolerance - Justice - Solidarity - Gender equality). This pedagogical tool is available in Italian, German and English and in the digital version as well at our YouTube link. The game “The House of Common Values” was developed within the EUMINT Project. It is a tool to teach civic education, especially for school teachers.

Role-play "Space Migrants"

"Space migrants" is a role-play for youth, schools and youth organisations. Simulating a conflictual situation between different teams, stereotypes and prejudices emerge in Space Migrants, as well as conflicting feelings and emotions affecting inter-group relations. In the experiential activity, young participants can observe the mechanisms behind discriminations in a “protected space”. The role-play provides a practical and joyful approach to discuss relevant topics as discriminations, racism, xenophobia, while deepening cultural diversity and its advantages. The role-play is available in German and Italian. Space migrants was developed within the MigrAlp project.
