Escape to diversity is a project about escape rooms for educational purposes. At this training course, we gathered 20 youth workers, NGO activists and youth leaders to teach them how to use escape rooms for education.
This training course was funded by the International Visegrad Fund in 2020 and it took a long year for us to implement it. We had to deal with the coronavirus epidemic, travel restrictions and one of the trainers getting COVID on the last day before the activity. But we managed it!
Though our original intention was to do it in Kyiv, in the end, we implemented it in Poltava. This is a beautiful city with amazing people. Thanks to the professionalism of our organizers - Veronika Kurkina and Dmitriy Markov, the training course was implemented flawlessly.
The idea of the training course was similar to other training courses we made on this topic. Participants learned about escape rooms, went to play several of those to practice and then built 3 amazing rooms of their own.
On 23rd of May, we made an open event to invite locals to play the rooms that were made by participants and to promote ideas of inclusion, diversity and human rights. Event was attended by 25 people and together with training course participants, they played escape rooms over 15 times.
