Research shows that young people often have to deal with discrimination. This happens on a regular basis at school, in nightlife and in sports. Fair Play confronts these youngsters with anti-Semitism and discrimination against Muslims and gay people. The game challenges them to think about and be more aware of their own actions. What role do you take at crucial moments? What actions do you take? How is it that you want to react but you don’t? Doing nothing also has a consequence!
Anne Frank Foundations’ question
This educational game confronts young people with both discrimination by others as their own prejudices in a contemporary way. The Anne Frank Foundation wants to make these issues subject of discussion to raise awareness among this target group.
The game is realistic and close to the inner world and worldview of young people. Players get direct feedback on the choices they make. They see the impact of their actions on themselves and others around them. A major pitfall for players is how casually discrimination sometimes happens.
The game provokes the players to think about their own choices and appeals to their sense of responsibility. The player will find himself in tricky situations concerning discrimination, prejudice and peer pressure. All the players’ actions have an effect on the development of the story. At the end of the game you see what the effect of your decisions mean for you and your crew members. Do certain things happen more often? How did they feel? What could you have done differently? In the end Fair Play achieves young people to recognize similar situations in their own lives.
The game has been played by more than 15.000 players in The Netherlands. The game has been translated into 6 languages and is now internationally rolled out to multiple countries.
