‘IN SOMEBODY ELSE’S SHOES’

After learning why so many people were forced to flee Syria and  understanding how the ‘refugee crisis’ was dealt with in Germany,  groups will be given a challenge aimed at encouraging empathy.

This interactive simulation gives groups the chance to experience the difficult decisions people living under dictatorships and war are faced with every day. The workshop is set in the future in a dystopian Europe, oppressed by a militant regime. Through a series of challenges, groups will have to work together to find their best route to survival in a dangerous and unpredictable situation. The workshop is led by a refugee who has faced similar challenges and who will be able to offer advice and guidance through first-hand experience.

groups will be asked after following this workshop to  write about their experience and how it felt stepping into the shoes  of millions of people around the world who live under dictatorships,  who fight for freedom and who, when all else fails, are forced to flee their home countries.
