The Swiss SIETAR Congress was a great success and most enjoyable experience, with great sessions and beautiful locations. During the workshop Catherine Roignan presented and facilitated the diversophy® Nouveaux Repères game. Participants represented various European nationalities North to South. Playing in groups of 4-5 they provided us with valuable feedback: What is your experience? – This game fosters dialogue and allows to learn new and interesting things. It worked extremely well with our group. Do some questions raise conflict between players? – There were none that could be identified as raising conflict. That led us to realize that discussion should be encouraged rather than avoided.
diversophy® is honored to support the Remagen Campus 12-week acculturation program, that aims to bring together refugees, local Germans and International students from Hochschüle Koblenz university. The main activity was playing the diversophy® Germany game. Overall the environment was very professional, yet friendly.
