The videos in the freedom collection may not initially be obvious choices of activity when exploring the concepts associated with liberty. They are not meant to replace any activity the youth worker devises to discuss any of the complex and dynamic ideas in this area – such as freedom of speech, human rights, freedom and responsibility, respect, and so on. Many of those concepts can be explored more fully through the youth worker’s methods and through discussion and teaching in the normal ways.
The videos are, instead, designed to spark initial thoughts about freedom. They can be used to introduce the concepts, and to gather feelings and ideas from participants about such issues as ‘being controlled’, ‘stuck’, acting out of conformity, and so on.
