Description

This school workshop, sponsored by ÖGK and the City of Vienna, helps students learn to value diversity and understand it as a resource. It sensitizes them to the diversity in ourselves and in society, addresses challenges (exclusion, discrimination, etc.) and promotes a prejudice-conscious approach. Depending on the age group, different focuses are set and age-appropriate methods and examples are used.

Contents

In the course of the “Me & Diversity” workshop, students deal with their personal identity as well as with different diversity dimensions (origin, gender, age, skin color, etc.). Interactive exercises encourage the students to reflect on their own views and personal experiences with diversity. The students deal with questions like: What makes up my identity? Which groups do I feel I belong to? How do prejudices arise and what dangers do they entail? How can good interaction succeed despite differences?
