The Role Play

In the session on May 17 you will present a small role play with your team. Please add here a short reflection on what you have learned from this play

Empathy and perspective-taking: By immersing myself in the role of an activist and discussing a topic from their point of view, I can develop empathy and a deeper understanding of the challenges, motivations, and values that drive activists. This exercise encourages me to step into someone else's eyes and consider their experiences and perspectives.
