This is a board game about refugees, suitable for middle and upper primary and lower secondary classes as well as youth and community groups. Its purpose is to allow players to gain some understanding of what it is like to become a refugee and why people are sometimes forced to leave their homes and their countries. Students play the game on board, aiming to achieve re-settlement in another country or voluntary repatriation. Some of the hazards of the journeys are explored.
An activity for ages 11 to adult which explores the interdependence of people in different countries. Focuses on families involved with the growing of cocoa and the production of chocolate in three countries, Brazil, Ghana and the UK. Issues of wealth and poverty between and within countries are explored through the choices each family makes about meeting their basic needs. Events during the game emphasise the uneven distribution of wealth and power.
This game is taken from Amnesty International UK’s humanrights education pack ‘Freedom’. It is about a group of refugees escaping to freedom. Participants are confronted by a series of human rights dilemmas that they have to try to resolve by consensus. The aims of this game are: to introduce participants to human rights; to developknowledge and understanding of democracy, legal and human rights and responsibilities, systems of justice and skills in communication and working with others.
