Project Development Using the Round Table Method
Bringing Together Different Needs and Views to Achieve a Common Goal and Realise a Common Project
Thursday, April 27, 14.00, Auditorium 1
In the workshop, we will simulate a Round Table process with a role-play after a short introduction to the method and to possible fields of application. You will become familiar with facilitation and project development method that can help you establish a dialogue between different groups in society and develop projects together. The topic of the Round Table simulation will be: How can we overcome polarization in our neighbourhood/community and motivate people to engage?
The Round Table Method is a method of facilitation and project development based on the following principles: impartial professional facilitation, discussion at eye-level, transparency and open project development process outcomes. It is also very important that the decision-makers are part of the process and that all the people or parties which are concerned with the topic or project (or at least their representatives) are included in the process.
Key words: active communities, eye-level communication, cooperative project development process, dialogue, civic participation
