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.
