Unbox inclusion. Poland, Poznan, 2022.

“Unbox Inclusion” was a training course hosted and implemented by Logos. It happened from 28 of November to 6 of December in Poznan, Poland.

During the 9 inspiring days we managed to learn more about minorities and human rights in general, as well as build our own Escape Boxes! But, let’s start from the beginning..

On the first intense, but exciting day we got to know each other better, introduced the schedule of the next days and learned more about Logos. Then, we had a full day dedicated to human rights and minorities, which was highlighted by the visit to “Niewidzialna Ulica”, a social enterprise that is showing the life of people with visual disabilities. The next day we visited escape rooms and played escape boxes to understand the mechanics of the game and get some inspiration for the next, busy days. The last days were devoted to the theory of Escape boxes, and building our own games.

Needless to say, we managed to create 4 escape boxes, which we tested and presented at our open event, which was visited by more than 50 people!

Escape box №1.

Topic: Sexual Minorities

Name of the room: Adam is missing

Short description: The box aims to raise awareness about the dangers people from LGBTQI+ minority face and make people more empathic. The box is telling a story of Adam- a boy who decided to leave the country because of the discrimination he faced. While playing the box you will see what problems he faced, and learn more about the situation in different countries.

Escape box №2.

Topic: Ethnic Minority, Financial Literacy

Name of the room: Testament

Short description: So many of us don’t know how to deal with money, so though the game the players will develop financial literacy skills– basics how to handle money in a reasonable way. It is important to make people aware of their financial situation and to make them start to think about their money. All of this, while learning the story of a Roma family struggling with their financial situation!

Escape box №3.

Topic: Disabilities

Name of the room: Mission Impossible

Short description: In our daily life we don’t think about the life of people with disabilities, but we certainly should! This box is aiming to raise awareness of the difficulties that people with disabilities have in their daily lives. During the game you will have to use all the senses to solve the puzzles, just like a person with disabilities that lacks one of them have to compensate with others in their daily lives.

Escape box №4.

Topic: Domestic Violence

Name of the room: Bad Boy

Short description: Many tragedies go unnoticed and we tend to judge people without knowing their story. Through the game we want to raise awareness about domestic violence and familiarise the international sign of domestic violence. The box aims to start a discussion on how we can solve the problems and show that these things are happening in real life

*With the help of the toolboxes, you can fully reconstruct the escape room and spread the knowledge of human rights in your hometown.

Grow. Improve. Volunteer. Poznan, Poland, 2022

“Grow. Improve. Volunteer.” is an international training course that was implemented in Poznan from 13th of November till 20th of November.

📚At this training course NGO members, activists and volunteers learned more about humanitarian principles and volunteering work.

🔍During 6 days of collective work, the participants learned about the better ways to respond to challenges and problems, collected useful tools, methods and practices for working with refugees and shared their volunteer experiences.

✍️One of the main goals of the training was to create a space for discussion and finding solutions on how to better and more professionally prepare for possible future waves of Ukrainian refugees that may come in the winter.

🧳During the training course participants had study visits to local organizations in Poznan that are also working with refugees and minority groups (Centrum Integracji Cudzoziemców w Poznaniu, BARKA, Migrant Info Point). Group also visited the reception point for refugees in Poznan, where the participants were able to get acquainted with the specifics of volunteer work from the inside and adopt some ideas of how the help and activities for refugees are organized.

📝By the end of the training course participants created a volunteering tool kit. This material is the quintessence of the knowledge gained at the training and the ideas that came during the exchange of volunteering experience between participants. You can check this material here.

This project was organized by Logos NGO in partnership with ActionAid.

 

Narratives from Nature. Janowice Wielkie, Poland, 2022

“Narratives from nature” it's an outdoor project that took place in the Janowice Wielkie region of Poland between 15-29 September 2022. 

🏕The main aim of the project was to promote environmental awareness, sustainability, intercultural cooperation and tolerance through reflecting on our relationship with the natural world.

🎒This project provided the opportunity for 36 participants from programme and partner countries to explore a region of Poland that stands out for its natural beauty and ecological diversity. Through the frame of storytelling, participants explored the local environment and each other's cultures in an outdoor setting.

🇵🇱During the two weeks of project participants gained outdoor skills, visited local places of historical and cultural importance to explore the traditions of the region and went for a multi-day hike in the Rudawski National Park and the Giant Mountains. Through experimenting with different methods of storytelling participants created their own stories by the end of the project. In those stories they reflected on the experience of spending two weeks outdoors with an international group and shared their unique experiences.

This youth exchange was implemented by Logos, Lernlabor, AMITIE FRANCO RUSSE LANGUEDOC “AFR” and was financed by Erasmus+ programme.

Escape rooms for education: fair future without xenophobia. Poznan, Poland, 2021.

"Escape rooms for education: fair future without xenophobia" was a training course hosted and implemented by Logos. It happened on 21-28 of November 2021 in Poznan, Poland.

🎉
It was 9 fabulous days of learning and exploring. Let's sum up the outcomes of our hard work. During these days, we got to know a lot about each other and our countries, learned about European values and Erasmus+, conducted two open events, engaged with locals, and, of course, built 3 unique escape rooms with educational purpose on the topic of human rights and its violation.
As the dissemination of the project we had an open event with around 50 guests, who played escape rooms, made by participants and learned about important human right issues.

🧩Escape room №1.

🎯Topic: Domestic violence
Name of the room: Love makes a house a home
Short description: There are a lot of people all over the world who are experiencing domestic violence. Women, children, men, and others. But during pandemic times, this number rose even more. Thus, the project participants want to present an escape room that will help others see the problem closer than only from the statistics and numbers. In this game, you are supposed to be in the role of neighbors who have heard that something is going on in the house, and now they need to clarify what is happening while the husband is absent.

🧩Escape room №2.
🎯Topic: Freedom of speech
Name of the room: Independent speech
Short description: Violation of freedom of speech is one of today's biggest problems. Almost nothing threatens to democracy more. And our participants understood this topic perfectly. They created an escape room where you can experience which difficulties journalists face when they want to tell others. With the help of this room, players will gain knowledge about the freedom of sharing information, about the right of a person to express their personal position and view without fear of consequences.

🧩Escape room №3.
🎯Topic: Xenophobia
Name of the room: Birou de resedinte
Short description: Xenophobia is not something we hear about a lot. But actually, fear of foreign things is a widespread problem, even in the EU countries. Therefore, the main goal of the escape room, which participants wanted to deliver, is to show how xenophobia works in developed countries. And they nailed it. Open toolbox to know more details; we wouldn't like to spoil the scenario:)

Mission Impossible. Poland – Lithuania, 2020

From 15th until 21st November, 2020 we implemented our hybrid Youth Exchange: Mission Impossible. The hybrid youth exchange took place online and offline at the same time. Some of participants gathered together in Poland and some gathered in Lithuania. Other joined online.

Thanks to our partners from Lithuania Stovykla „Draugai“ and the donors Jaunimo Reikalų Departamentas we gathered 20 young people from Lithuania and Poland, both on-line and off-line in Poznań; who spend 5 days exchanging ideas, experiences and having a lot of fun.

The participants had the chance to learn a little bit more about the concept of social business, to get the awareness of the social problems that both societies, Polish and Lithuanian, are facing nowadays; and to propose real solutions to those through their own social business projects.

Moreover, we had the chance to present our countries through creative presentations, music, legends and quizzes in our Lithuanian and Polish intercultural sessions.

Once again we would like to congratulate our participants for their commitment and amazing job and to our partners as well as donors for making it possible to implement such as amazing initiative, especially taking into account the current difficulties we are all facing.

Think critical. Skepsis. Poznan, Poland, 2020

During 23-30 of August, under the coordination of Logos NGO, we had a possibility to implement a project "Think critical. Skepsis" in Poznan, Poland. This project was implemented within the Skepsis movement 
For a whole week, we have been working on the themes of critical thinking and media literacy with 4 countries: Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia.
Trainers presented some interesting information on cognitive biases, logical fallacies, misconceptions, fake news, and fake photos. Then, participants were asked to create their own workshops and they did it in an amazing way:
- Some of them staged interactive theatre including logical fallacies and cognitive biases.
- Some people designed stickers on "Smart fact-checking"
- Another team made a Kahoot presentation of biases.
- Moreover, one team decided to involve an article analysis of the Russian vaccine.
- And the last team also did an incredible thing. They filmed a video, a social experiment, you already saw on our page.
Unfortunately, the project is over. Everybody is already home. Because of the pandemic situation, some activities were cancelled, but anyway, the project was really educational.
Don’t forget that the learning process can be also fun and not exhausting!
The project was supported by International Visegrad Fund.
We have created a website where all the outcomes you can find. You can definitely use it and share it with others.

Logos organization and Skepsis movement are thankful to all of you, partners, and participants, for this educational project to happen. We hope you found out new knowledge or at least now know the direction to move on.

This project was developed and hosted by Logos and implemented together with our great partners:

When neighbours become friends. Poland-Lithuania, 2020

In August 2020, 8 young people from all around Poland have taken part in an innovative and interesting project, an exchange of cultures online with a Lithuanian partner.

The first day was mainly to get the participants more aware of the program and the common rules of the project, but it was the 'first contact' between the two groups, which was interesting to see.

The second day started with the Language exchanges that they would continue doing until the end of the project, a short and sweet way of learning some more about the language of the other group.

The third day was one of the first intercultural night, in which the Lithuanian side shared some valuable information about their country.

The most important activity during the 4th day was the one about the national fairytales, both teams taking a more modern approach regarding some very old tales.

The fifth day was marked by another presentation, this time the Poles presented their country and some valuable information.

The last two days were more about the City Challenge that was exhausting yet fun for everyone involved. Videos were created, great moments were shared between the groups and a final heartfelt goodbye on the last day from both groups with a promise of both groups meeting sometime down the line.

All in all, a great experience for the youngsters, filled with great achievements, laughs and unforgettable experiences!
