Escape for Human Rights is a Solidarity Project founded by European Solidarity Corps which aim to promote human rights among young people. We use in this regard the escape rooms method. The main idea of an escape room is that a team of players must solve several puzzles and find a way out of the room. While doing this, the players follow a story. In our rooms, this story will promote human rights by illustrating examples of their violation, which will be revealed at every step that players take to escape the room. After the youth group “escapes” a reflection session takes place in which the young people will be able to better analyze the story behind the room and will be able to connect it to the daily realities.
