About the exercise
- Plenary exercise
- Time required : 15 minutes
- Target audience : Best suited to grassroots-level groups/faith communities, civil society organisations and human rights defenders.
To enable participants to recognise the good things that they appreciate about their society/community, before moving on to look at problems.
A fun game and a good opening exercise for sessions focused on context analysis. Participants stand in a ring and throw a ball of wool or string to each other; naming things they appreciate about their community each time the ball is thrown. This creates a visual representation of being interconnected in the form of a ‘web’ of wool.
TIP! This exercise uses a methodology very similar to the ‘Trapped in the spiderweb’ exercise. Don’t use both exercises in the same training event.
