Connecting local responses around the world
Dear community, some time ago I posted my ideas about facilitating CLCP in really large groups. These were some of my experiences which might be helpful if you face that challenge:
If you have 200 participants, I would aim to get at least 5 facilitators. 10 is even better.
- Brief well together the day before the event with these people. Prepare the room for both plenary (in a circle) as well as 5 or more groups with sufficient A4 paper, markers, flipchart…
In current times, we use technology to remind us - our phones, google calendar and so on. In our project on immunization in Assam in a tiny village, people wanted to remember the date of next vaccination schedule of their babies. What did they do? Read on...

What do we have in common?
Before we (Nemo-group: Noemí, Amir, Birgitta and Margot) made our first SALT-visit we talked about what we would have in common with the people we were going to meet.
For me that is a very important ‘exercise’, because it takes me out of my head and brings me into my heart and feelings.
I like to share my experience about using the exercise ‘What do I have in common with’ in my everyday…Continue

'Why do we sit in a circle' was one of the first questions I was pondering and writing about after starting the SALT-course. In fact, there were more questions: 'How does hierarchy impact meetings?', 'How do rank differences show up in meetings?', 'What does a non-hierarchical setting means?', 'How do you create a non-hierarchical setting?', 'What will sitting in a circle do?'. These are my answers, based on my experiences in private and business situations.
When hierarchy is…Continue
Yesterday we did an exercise on story telling in a meeting with an informal network of former refugees that are building a future in the Netherlands. In fact, it is a loose network in the process of becoming a community, so we thought it would be a good idea to find a way where the members of this group get a chance to get to know each other better in a safe way, and also to get to know each other's strengths.
Recognising your own strengths, helps you climb mountains and overcome…Continue
