Intercultural communication and mutual understanding between people from a migrant background.

Short description/ Goal of the game:

This board game was developed as part of a Grundtvig project to promote intercultural communication and mutual understanding between people from a migrant background (refugees, asylum seekers, migrants) and the locals of the “host country”. 50 questions relating to 6 categories (education, Do’s and Don’ts, hobbies, traditions, leisure activities and communication) are available in several languages and use play to help give an insight into how individuals outside one’s own culture behave. This board game has been used very successfully as a teaching aid in “intercultural” groups and should be transferred as such.

The AIM is to create conversations between the players in order to share the cultural and personal aspects of each other regarding different topics.
