Scenario & Procedure

The events of the simulation game "Gadayel" takes place in a small town, where three main families participate in discussing and negotiating the challenges facing the residents of the town. Among the town residents, there are three main families. An institution within the town announces a grant that can be awarded to these mentioned families. A grant committee needs to be formulated to organize these funds. Consequently, discussions regarding who would be a suitable nominee for this committee arises. During these discussions, some challenges and problems arise, such as issues of gender equality, the lack of opportunities for the participation of less fortunate youth, the lack of integration of persons with disabilities and the appreciation of their potential in society. The characters within the game were designed to be diverse to comprehensively address the issue of equal opportunity, especially when it comes to issues of gender discrimination and opportunities in the workplace. By tackling these topics, the participants formulate well-rounded proposals that ensure more inclusive workplaces.


This simulation game aims at enhancing the knowledge regarding the process of the inclusion of marginalized youth and people with disabilities, and gender equality. It also sheds lights on the importance of these concepts as well as the obstacles that prevent their inclusion in the workplaces. It further highlights the available resources and mechanisms necessary to ensure participation, gender equality and inclusion of persons with disabilities. Finally, it encourages participants to apply and activate the concepts of participation and inclusion.
