Participatory Methods for Sustainable Community Development

Sunday, April 9, 2006 - 3:00am - 8:00am

Join us for this exciting workshop to learn and practice participatory methods. We all know that we're supposed to include the community in planning and implementing projects, but how do we actually put this into practice? Come learn how to use pictures, open-ended stories and other simple but powerful activities to encourage learning. Develop your skills to open up dialogue around community problems and empower people to solve their own problems. We will come prepared with examples from water and sanitation, but also focus on how to modify the basic techniques for use in different situations. Bring your favorite teaching/learning activity to share!
