The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) was established in 2005, as the political initiative of Mr. Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary General and co-sponsored by the Governments of Spain and Turkey. “UNAOC in Focus” is the first edition of UNAOC’s newsletter for 2017, and it has an article about More Than One Story.
More Than One Story: Building bridges with a card game (Newsletter from UNAOC, Janyary 2017)
The Intercultural Innovation Award (IIA) alumni organization, More Than One Story, developed a unique and powerful card game, which contributes in building bridges between people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures. Developed by youth and the Department of Culture and Leisure of the Municipality of Simrishamn as a tool for social inclusion and integration, the card game is being used in over 70 municipalities all over Sweden. More Than One Story has proven to help overcoming fears and prejudices, prevent people from being isolated, and foster tolerance and open-mindedness.
The IIA alumni organization More Than One Story is also building an international network that is spreading the use of the card game to increase peace around the world. With UNAOC’s support, the organization partnered with IIA Alumni from three different countries to spread the game in five different languages. As a result of their partnership with the NGO Welcoming America, More than One Story spread to nonprofit organizations, and universities, including 100 card games to the New York Public Library. Thanks to the partnership with the organization Vaga Lume and UNAOC’s support, over 150 communities in the Amazon rainforest and hundreds of educators and volunteers in Brazil are now playing More Than One Story.
UNAOC also facilitated the partnership between More Than One Story and the organization Irenia by printing 1300 samples in Spanish, Basc and Catalan that will be distributed in relevant events, including the yearly Assembly of the Spanish Network of the Ana Lindh Foundation. The documents will be also used in numerous workshops and schools in Spain. In addition, through UNAOC facilitation, More Than One Story was also translated into Hebrew and used as a pilot in the “Kehila”, Tel Aviv and Jaffa Democratic School in Israel.
