About the exercise
- Plenary exercise
- Time required : 15 minutes
- Target audience : Any audience willing to engage in participatory learning processes, e.g., grassroots-level groups/faith communities, civil society organisations, human rights defenders and faith leaders. An alternative methodology for more formal or academic training settings is provided.
To establish ground rules for the training. These are important to create a safe space with common expectations about how participants will talk and listen to one another.
A simple participatory exercise allowing participants to contribute ground rules anonymously. This is particularly well-suited to groups who don’t know each other or have significant power dynamics, for example due to gender, minority-majority status or the participation of leadership figures e.g., religious leaders or managers.
