During the workshop, festival participants will be able to test the board game: this will be essential to evaluate players’ feedback in order to make any changes before the development of the final version.

Who was the Arab prime minister of the Austrian government?

Who is the Palestinian novelist who won the Man Booker International Prize?

What famous aviator and writer was depicted on the French francs before the introduction of Euro?

These are some of the gaming questions of the GEM – Game for EuroMed project, funded by the Anna Lindh Foundation to provide skills and knowledge to educators working both in formal and non-formal education.

GEM’s partnership involves organizations from both sides of the Mediterranean, in particular:

  • CESIE (Italy, coordinator),
  • ADICE – Association for the Development of Citizen and European Initiatives (France),
  • JUHOUD – Juhoud for community and Local Development (Palestine),
  • WASEELA – Waseela for training and development (Egypt).
