Visual exercise to instigate reflection on the impact of change on the individual
To recognize that change is taking place all over the world at any time and that we as individuals need to change ourselves.
- Flipchart paper
- markers and or crayons
no pre-work required
Refrain from using the word change in the entire workshop. Substitute words - transformation, transition, and development over the years.
This activity is a powerful visualization of change happening over the years- have participants do three sets of drawings on flip chart paper, i.e. drawing the living conditions in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, etc.. to-date.
Give them crayons, markers to make it as vibrant as possible. Once the drawings are completed, paste them on the wall and get them to talk about the reasons for this transformation - and then it becomes plainly obvious - we're all part of an ecological system.
Factors around the whole world have changed our living environment that we need to do something to ourselves so that we can remain relevant.
