It's been a great afternoon performing this amazing project with Changemakerz and City Pirates; getting in touch with the community, the local businesses, investors, and the youngsters of the city.
We started the HQ of City Pirates, where Radja Nainggolan (famous soccer player) grew up. We were playing games such as "privilege basketball" and "dizzy ball" with the business people to make them aware of concepts like discrimination and let them experience what happens if you're working together to achieve goals from a win-win-perspective.
The locals discovered how the different people in Linkeroever experience live in a different way. We made them do a race running running the stairs from the 25th floor of one of the flats in the block. We made them aware that some people have to walk the stairs with groceries to the 25st floor everyday when the elevator is broken while others who live across the street get out of their villa and get in their electric car to go to work.
The team with the locals had a lot of fun visiting the elderly center while they played a "secret game", being there made them aware what the elderly do during day time. At the calisthenics park in the middle of the Chicago Block Daniel did some exercises with one pull up bar and used it as a metaphor for building a company with a few tools.
Afterwards we got feedback and the results were great. Talking about how can we help the community on closing the gap between the lower class and the rest of the city using an Urban Safari. It makes people more aware of what's really going in those kind of areas.
After the successful afternoon we came back to the HQ of City Pirates in Linkeroever where we all had fun at the barbecue.
