Safe space rules

From Community Narrations

Aims of the practice and description of participants

The aim of the exercice is to create a safe space with and for all the trainees.

Resources, Materials needed

A big sheet of paper, pensils of different colours.

Duration

15-20 mins.

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

On a big sheet of paper, all participants will write the rules they want to be respected during the training, i.e : "We respect all genders, cultures, and religions" or "let's try not to cut each others off". People can use different colours and also add some drawings.

Learning Outcomes - which skills are addressed?

By writing all of those rules, the participants will feel more confident to talk and communicate with each other. Moreover, the process of creating something together (the creation of the rules in the big sheet of paper) creates a link between all the participants, which will also help for the future communication between everyone.

How do you check the outcomes are reached?

You check if the outcomes are reached during the whole training, by analyzing the way people communicate and if they respected the rules.
