Overview of Activity
This activity is a guessing game that encourages participants to learn about different activists while also promoting cultural sensitivity and fostering discussion.
Description of Activity
1. The facilitator reads out the list of activists before the activity starts and asks participants. The chosen activists should be suitable for the group as there might be cultural differences.


2. The facilitator hands out to participants the sticky post-it notes on which the names of the activists are written. Every participant gets one sticky note, and they should not know who they are beforehand. They place the post-it cards on their foreheads.


3. Each participant is allowed to ask up to 10 questions to figure out who they are. The facilitator can step in at the end if there is someone who could not guess.


4. Once everyone has successfully identified their assigned activist, the facilitator initiates a quick feedback session. Participants are encouraged to share their feelings about the activity or suggest ways to improve it. This feedback session allows for reflection, discussion, and potential modifications for future iterations of the activity.
Sources & Additional Materials
● Pen, sticky post-it cards
Additional Notes
Social and cultural backgrounds of participants should be taken into account while choosing the activists.


A limited list of activists should be given to participants, otherwise, it is difficult to guess who they are.



Ideas for activists:

Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Greta Thurnberg, Harvey Milk, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, Terry Fox, etc.
