The activities in the pack draw on methodologies and skills familiar to youth workers. The pack is also designed to be flexible and youth leaders can pick and mix from the activities. The activities attempt to encourage a positive response to the diversity of people in Ireland. They encourage respect for people regardless of their ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, abilities and disabilities, membership of the Traveller or settled community or age. The activities in the Warm-Ups section are short, simple activities which touch on the theme of diversity while encouraging participation and interaction. They can be used to begin a session incorporating activities from elsewhere in the pack.
