Guide and instruct the participants in the four rounds of creating models symbolizing four main topics: - ROUND 1 Identity: Participants will build a model made of bricks as a representation of themselves at their arrival in the country/community they are living in now. - ROUND 2 Integration: Participants will build a model made of bricks as a representation of themselves in a moment when they felt completely accepted or supported in the new community they are living in. - ROUND 3 Ideal Community: Participants will build a model made of bricks as a representation of an ideal community that is able to welcome, integrate, and accept diversity. - ROUND 4 Gap: Participants will build a model made of bricks as a representation of what their community is missing to welcome, integrate, and accept diversity.

4. Encourage participants to create models without judgment and emphasize that there are no wrong answers.

5. Facilitate a reflection and discussion session at the end of the activity where participants can share their models and thoughts in a supportive and respectful environment.
