Unit 2: Procedure

2.1 Participants should stand next to each other at one end of the room. Everyone is given a role card to look at but not to show or talk about to the others. The participants should put themselves in their roles. To support empathy, they should close their eyes; ask them the following empathy questions:

  • How was your childhood?
  • How does your everyday life look like?
  • Where do you live?
  • What do you do in your free time?

After each question, give the participant a moment to answer the question for themselves in silence.

2.2 Announce that a series of questions will now be asked. Each time the participants in their roles can answer “yes” to a question, they should take a step forward. If they answer “no”, they should stop. Answering the questions is about subjective assessment, which is more important than factual correctness. Ask about 15 game questions. The participants continue in silence or remain standing. They should continue to keep their role to themselves.
