This project targets participants across Bosnia and Herzegovina, and its impact is further widened through a teaching guide and toolkit to affect needed changes, in both formal and non-formal educational settings.
Game Changers gathered 12 young people coming from across BiH to develop 3 board games focused on topics such as gender (in)equalities, occupational segregation and gender wage gaps, domestic violence and public gender-based discrimination, under-representation of women in political and economic decision-making processes, other relevant democratic values and/or media literacy related to empowerment of women and girls.
The board games will be designed, printed, and tested in alpha-testing (pilot) game sessions organized by participants at participants’ home-towns, i.e. their high-schools/universities. They will draft individual session reports, while the project team will draft a country report outlining games’ advantages and shortcomings based on the “pilot-testing” sessions. All participants will meet again online, to discuss and improve games’ functionality features based on their own reports and the general feedback they receive from players. They will then jointly draft a toolkit, film promotional videos and instructions for online ‘Training of Trainers’ (ToT) interactive sessions for teachers/ CSO facilitators. Finally, the board games will be disseminated across BiH, in printed or online versions.
