Live through the daily lives of the characters and understand the challenges they face by placing yourself in their shoes.
This character simulation enables participants to empathise with others' life experiences and develop an inclusive mindset.
An inclusive society, according to the World Summit for Social Development, is "a society for all," in which every individual, with rights and responsibilities, has an active role to play.
This means allowing individuals to achieve their full potential in life regardless of their background with equal opportunities.
Empathy is a building block in achieving an inclusive society.
Vulnerable individuals may not feel a sense of belonging in the community. Understanding and considering how other feels will make those vulnerable among us feel valued and accepted.
As an inclusive society develops, the well-being of individuals, mutual trust, sense of belonging and inter-connectedness increases.
Select a character and make decisions based on the circumstances faced.
Reflect on your emotions and think of how you can help.
Lastly, take action to build an inclusive society!
Let’s Talk SG is a youth programme curated to empower youths by creating conversations around salient social issues such as race and religion. Over the course of 12 weeks, youths will learn how to approach conversations with empathy and care and this will culminate in a final project to reach out to other youths.
