Step-by-step - what has to be done?

The participants make groups of 3. Each group picks a card from a selection provided by the facilitators. Each card shortly describes (in 3-4 words) a persona the group has to put themselves in the shoes of.
Each group starts imagining the daily routine of the persona on their card – from waking up in the morning to going to bed. The participants counsel together and agree on a routine. They can choose to write it down in order to remember it. At the end of the group process, each group has to present their persona by describing their daily routine. They are invited to pick one person to tell the story of the daily routine as linear and as detailed as possible. They can use digital or analogue media (e.g. drawings, symbols etc.) to support their story.
