How to empower people to have a better understanding for each other through meeting on an eye level?

2. State the ultimate impact you would like to have.

People who do not know each other, but are open to one another.

3. What are some possible solutions to your problems or ways to answer your question?

Initiating meetings. Introducing them to one another through friends for example at a dinner party. Making them play together. The game as a heterotopia. Creating the conditions / the situations to laugh together. Positive connotated interactions. Having the same goal. Building something together. Having to design / build the dishes, cooking utensils together, a hut, the instruments to make music and so on. 

4. Write down some of the context and constraints that you are facing.

Time as something many people feel they are missing. The motivation to come to such events. Fear of the unknown.

5. Does your original question need a tweak?

How to make myself and others want to meet up with strangers? In which cases is this desirable?
