Making First Connections
Updated: Mar 14, 2018
The project group is complete and on place!
Today participants made their first connections with each other. Using colorful woolen threads we visualized these first contacts and got to know with each other by asking interesting and bizarre questions like: ''if you could be an exciting and unusual flavor of an ice-cream, what would you be?'' or ''what would be the title of your autobiography'' and our trainer Nik's favorite question as well: ,,If a penguin with a sombrero came in the room right now, what would it say and why would it be here?''
Though the group is huge, consisting 32 people, everyone managed to remember each other's names. It's not surprising, since we used several name games and icebreakers.
During the first part of the day we explored the concept of the training course and the project as a whole. Participants interviewed each other on the topics of Programme, Aims, Group, Non-formal Education, Youth Work, Participation and the Project itself. Later, they summarized and presented the answers with flip-charts.
