The “Tabletop Reproductive Rights” project, supported by UNFPA BiH, will bring together young people to jointly develop a board game focused on educating young people, with a special focus on high school students, about the menstrual cycle, menstrual health, menstrual poverty and the stigma surrounding it.
Project participants will gather in Sarajevo for a three-day workshop (November 21-24, 2022), during which, working with a mentor, they will come up with the concept and outline design of the board game. After the workshop, until the end of December 2022, the participants will continue to work with mentors and a graphic designer in order to realize the game concept into the final product.
The board game will be designed, printed, and tested in alpha-testing (pilot) game sessions organized by participants at participants’ home-towns, i.e. their high-schools/universities. They will draft individual session reports, while the project team will draft a country report outlining games’ advantages and shortcomings based on the “pilot-testing” sessions. All participants will meet again online, to discuss and improve games’ functionality features based on their own reports and the general feedback they receive from players. They will then jointly draft a toolkit, film promotional videos and instructions for Finally, the printed out board game will be disseminated across high schools in Canton Sarajevo and will also be available as a ready-to-print free downloadable packages.
