Take a Step Forward

In the exercise ‘Take a Step Forward’ each participant got a role, e.g. a retired worker or a person with dissabilities. They were asked different reflection questions for getting into the role. Then they had to line up beside each other and different statements were read out, e.g. ‘I feel my language and culture are respected in the society I live in’. If they could answer yes, they took a step forward. Finally, the participants reflected on their position in relation to the others. One of the reflections were that despite some of the participant had the same role, there was a difference regarding how many step they took. This difference was explained by the the different national contexts that the roles were imagined in.
