[edit] Description

[edit] Introduction

In the room we put 4 envelopes numbered from 1 to 4. In each envelope we put one paper sheet with a task on it. Each envelope represents one of four stations participants need to pass until the end of the session. These help you to take a first step within an idea finding process. The outcome of this session is not presented to all participants.

The tasks have to be done in silence.

[edit] 1. Social Issue

In the first envelope is a task for participants to think what is a social issue they are burning for (which issue is very important to them). They may write down thoughts they have during this session (time 15’).

[edit] 2. Mind Map

In next envelope they find task to make a mind map on previous topic (time 15’).

[edit] 3. The ideal

At the third station they visualize their thoughts regarding selected issue or to draw how they see ideal community (time 15’).

[edit] 4. Steps to take

The last station is for participants to write on paper steps they are ready to take as their vision could come true (time 20’).

[edit] Remarks

If the group likes, facilitators can put some relaxing silent music in background during session in order to help participants in their creational process.
