In the end, 12 students were involved in a situation game who were given the role of a homeless person to experience the difficulties of homelessness. they were split into two teams to have a little competition during the game. Members of both teams struggled in the position of a person who had just become homeless to get a place in a homeless shelter. Each participants were given a copy of „Fedél Nélkül” streetpaper.

The students already had experiences with homelessness and had a lot of questions. The participants were very empathetic and open-minded and took part in the game boldly and creatively.
