“I think it is important to have educational escape rooms in schools, you learn a lot and you have to think more to solve the riddles, and it becomes almost automatic that you think about the topic as well. It is not really possible to avoid it in the same way as some do when they find it difficult. It also makes learning fun, and you get very into it. I also think the step forward game we played with different roles is very good for getting to know how others feel. When we ran it, I got a Muslim girl as a role, and then I had to think about that role, and then I felt that I became more understanding. "

Aim

"ESCAPE the phobia" aims to reduce the prevalence of xenophobia and intolerance among young people aged 15-20 years old in the Örebro region and to provide teachers and youth leaders with new innovative tools to do this. 

Objectives

  • We have developed and tested three different methods to achieve the goal of reducing the incidence of xenophobia and intolerance among young people aged 15-20
    which are spreadable.
     

  • We have spread the methods to increase knowledge about Islamophobia, Afrophobia, and Homophobia to at least 300 people aged 15-20 in the Örebro region through various activities and at least 300 people aged 15-20 online.

  •  At least 75% of people feel that the methods have reduced their attitudes towards xenophobia and intolerance

  • The methods have been disseminated to at least 1000 teachers and youth leaders in Sweden.
