LINK TO THE TOPIC

Maybe at first sight it is hard to find things that all people in a group or in a society share, but if we think a bit deeper we always find things we all have in common.

OBJECTIVES OF THE ACTIVITY

  • Closing the workshop
  • Evalutation

DESCRIPTION

The participants stand in a circle. One after the other each participant takes one step forwards into the circle and says a thing that they assume fits for all group members, e.g. “We all like pizza”. Every person who agrees on the statement then also steps one step forward into the circle. The participants recognize the answer. Every participant who took a step into the circle now returns to his or her previous position. Then the next person announces a thing and so on. The game can be played either until every participant stated one sentence or until the group found one thing that all participants have in common.

REFLECTION

  • What did you choose: A statement you thought everybody would agree on or a statement you would like everybody to agree on? Why?
  • What are things that we all have in common?
  • What are things that we all have in common, even if we don’t think about them instantly?
