Against All Odds
We hope that "Against All Odds", an educational and interactive online game, will increase understanding and knowledge of refugees amongst young people. In the game participants are given the chance to follow a young person along their journey to flee oppression in their homeland and start a new life in a foreign society. The game is intended to increase young people’s awareness and knowledge about refugees – where they come from, what situations they have faced and how they adapt to their new lives.
In the web facts, particpants can read about human rights and international law, as well as individual refugees' stories. Participants can also watch short films and listen to refugees talk about their personal experiences, such as how they fled, what it was like to come to a new country and having to start a new school or find a job.
