The Quiz was organised in order to give the partecipants the chance to test their knowledge on the past and present of racism. We created two different quizzes: one on the history of colonialism in Africa, to get to the roots of present time racism, another one on events, movies, and facts on racial discrimination today in Italy and in the world. The goal was to have fun, while also further develop our knowledge and awareness on the subject.
As already said, we created two different quizzes on Quizizz: https://quizizz.com/admin/quiz/5faaaca5e2657d001cc4631f/quiz-on-racism-esn-udine-part-colonialism-in-africa, https://quizizz.com/admin/quiz/5fafa0bb28fe96001c69fc4e
The partecipants met on Zoom and, after a short presentation by the organisers, the partecipants were able to play together the three quizzes. At the end the organisers led a discussion on the topic asking questions as such: what surprised you out of the information you discovered through the quizzes? have you ever experienced racial discrimination? what would you do if you were to experience an episode of racism? do you think that jokes on racism contribute to the issue? what can we do to improve the situation?
By organising this activity, the organisers want to contribute to the following Sustainable Development Goals
