Games on inclusion of age, disability and gender in preparedness and humanitarian response

Games are a great way to help people learn. All the games here have been designed to support staff and volunteers in the humanitarian sector to work more inclusively and leave no one behind. Download the facilitation tips here.

The games cover a range of topics, some linking directly to the Humanitarian Inclusion Standards (HIS), and they use a variety of methods.

Why inclusion matters?

In this game, players assume the role of a community member. They decide the extent to which they are included in an NGO’s programming and activities.

Unconscious bias

By the end of this game, players will be able to reflect on own unconscious bias and how people’s identities influence our relationships and decisions.

What is dignity?

By the end of this game, players will be able to recognise the importance of maintaining people’s dignity and the personal nature of dignity.


Players work together to retell stories in which people receive appropriate
assistive products so as to live more independently and are more resilient when disasters occur.

Hearing older people


Players role play different characters and ask each other questions to discover the relationship between age and disability.
