About the exercise
- Group exercise
- Time required : 2 h 30 minutes
- Target audience : Best suited to grassroots-level groups/faith communities, civil society organisations, human rights defenders and faith leaders. Could also be used with politicians.
To enable participants to deepen their knowledge and develop action-planning skills.
Following a brief knowledge input on a simple ten-step process for action planning, groups draw and write their action plans as a visual ‘journey’ on flipchart sheets. Depending on your target audience, these action plans could be real plans that small groups want to implement, or sample plans developed as a way of learning action planning skills.
The exercise is designed to follow the ‘What’s the problem?‘ exercise but is easily adapted for use after any problem analysis exercise. Participants should have chosen a problem to develop an action plan for prior to the exercise. The exercise is aimed at groups with little (if any) prior knowledge of action planning processes.
