Even if most of us have a general knowledge about what we should do or not do, we often do not acknowledge them. “Each trip starts with the first step”. So, change starts with us acknowledging what we need to change about us and start making concrete plans.


  • Materials: One copy of the “A better me” handout for each participant
  • Time: 40 – 60 minutes


  1. Introduce the theme of the activity
  2. Give each participant a copy of the “A better me” handout. Ask participants to assess themselves from 1 to 5, based on how much those statements represent them and their personality.
  3. Following the assessment, ask participants to start thinking about things that they should start doing, stop doing or do differently in order for them to be more inclusive towards refugees/asylum seekers and promote this behaviour in society. Offer about 20 minutes for this.
  4. Once this is finished, group the participants in a circle and start the debriefing process.


  • Was there anything that surprised you while making the self-assessment?
  • What can be something you can immediately change about you?
  • What are the biggest challenges you foresee in making these changes in your life?
  • How did it feel to write concrete things you plan to change?

What can you learn from this activity?




A Better Me!

Please rate your own behaviour from 1 to 5.

(1 means you don’t find yourself in the description on each line, 5 means that the description is an essential part of your life/work.)

I educate myself about the situation of refugees/asylum seekers in my country and Europe (e.g. what it is, how it is manifested, how it can be prevented etc.), by attending classes, workshops, by reading about it, searching for good practices etc.


I promote/advocate for equal treatment of refugees/asylum seekers in my close spheres of influence (e.g. by explaining this to relatives, friends or co-workers and pushing them to adopt it, by promoting a fair attitude on social media, by preventing or taking action in situations in which I see people in my proximity showing attitudes against refugees/asylum seekers etc.).


I promote/advocate for the inclusion of refugees/asylum seekers in society in general (e.g. by speaking/writing to people outside my close environment, politicians and different other public or private entities to raise awareness of problems that exclusion of refugees/asylum seekers is creating, by participating in demonstrations or being an activist for the rights of vulnerable groups etc.).


I monitor the environment in my organisation, my school, my work or other places I hang out in order to check if they promote/foster a fair attitude towards refugees/asylum seekers (for equal chances, equal rights, for prevention of their exclusion).


I combat the fake news about refugees/asylum seekers that I meet on-line or off-line.


I am active in providing direct support to refugees/asylum seekers (by donating for their cause, by meeting them, by helping them understand and integrate in our culture, by providing them with different forms of support they need etc).


I volunteer for organisations who work on the inclusion of refugees/asylum seekers in society.


I feel free to confront persons who use are using discriminatory language or show discriminatory behaviour and ask them to stop.



After you complete the checklist, please make a list of areas you think you should improve. Then create for yourself specific goals for becoming more inclusive in your life and for promoting a more inclusive world.


I should start doing...






I should stop doing...






I should do differently...
