take ownership of Clearing Participation become a group share on WHAT we do (describe the practices that we are involved in), Starting thinking about HOW we do it (Methodologies)
Focus on ourselves as actors involved in different participatory processes. Observe an experience that has been presented as a “study case” Create the right spirit and motivation among the participants in order to work on the virtual platform.
PRESENTATIONS of the facilitators of the participants of the project (previous experiences) Analyse the logo of the project, identity the key words and objectives.
Key wordsGoals People Diversity Growth Citizenship Network Foundations Sustainability Impacts Together Multiply Transformation Circle Digital Dynamic Capacity building/ empowerment Resources development Questioning and transforming democracy Lobbying and advocacy Red Antenna Up, down, around Tree Antenna Concentric Balance Expansion Opacity Learn about concrete experiences, case studies and key elements; Foundations of participation and methodology; Interdisciplinary - to learn through the experience of others; To create a network; To create our on way to do. Participation Raising awareness Growth Networks Direct democracy Collective procedures Exchange experience on a local level Conceptualize on the term of participatory democracy Undertaking initiatives at local and regional level
Precipitation, over thinking, too many opinions, concern about (focus on) my opinion. What helpedWhat didn’t help Collective approach Attention to different profiles Trust Adaptation Cooperation Responsibility Participation vs. effectiveness (big group vs. small group) Organization + representation Plan Win-win Negotiation Conditions Support Process Communication Learning Safe environment Equity/ balance Initiative Time, threat, opposition, risk, stress, challenge, rules.
FacilitatorsObstacles Well defined goals Listen Trust Resources Team work Enough time Sharing Open to environmental stimuli Motivation Freedom Pleasure Balance Lack of time Fear (failure, acceptance, etc…) No instruction Individual issues Find a group Personal needs/ worries/ dreams Sense of belong Confrontation/ conflict Self/etero conscience Critical thinking/ different profiles Negotiation Adaptation Time Different profiles Insecurity Lack of communication Out Good communication Empathy Active listening To share a code Accessibility to physical information Means to participate and tools Accessibility Short process Feedback Possibility to interact and change the plan In Motivation and sense of responsibility in the subject Self confidence Education In Out Scale and time – As potential facilitator or obstacle Both possible facilitators or obstacles Compromise Communication Network Engagement Feeling that you can make it The difference Distance Time Resources Share values and goals Plan Transparency
What makes it go wrong? What’s internal/ inherent vs. external? Participative methodology maybe enforcing… (not free) The shape is not important Short or long term processes? Crisis/ insecurity as obstacle or opportunity? Do different profiles make collective building impossible? How to generate trust between what is different – importance of individual work during participatory process. How relations of trust and power are built in the process?
Facts, sensations, interpretation Understand the rules We solved problems Deciding on a strategy Anticipating challenges Roles distribution Leader choice first (dropped after) Spontaneous leadership No visual communication/ couldn’t participate (all) Breaking the rules and be aware of it It’s easiest to give the answer How strict are the rules we have? What possible scenarios Decision on who will go to the facilitator Different levels of having initiative Not enthusiastic Group B as participants of group A Rely on perception of 1 person Not happy about carrying 4 persons Impact of the leader More cohesion after solving things together More energy when the group is united Better communication (more and more) Strategy organization, clarifying/ forming, fusion (production) High level of participation Easy flow of communication 4 more engaged, more expecting what may come Satisfaction because of task accomplishment Focus on the outcome I wanted to be a part of the group If I found the I should solve it Common Knowledge of the rules Cooperation within group A No team work within group B because of focus on task and other group What for to do this Time is important (looking for a solution).
Presentation of the study case (Felix) Participants in groups elaborate the questions in order to establish a “dialogue” with the experience. WHO, IN WHAT, FOR WHAT, HOW. Susana: CLEAR model Lucrecia ppt
Elements that came out from participants practices (“how”) Who Who not? People who are interested People who can contribute Context Relations between who’s Roles of him/ her: Promoter? Gender/ age/ organizations (quantitative data) How Organization of the process + power Express = Listen (ability, motivation, open act) Tools and method (adapt, appropriated, accessibility; comfortable) Culture Empowerment Facilitator Rules Ambient Transparency Feedback about results Time What for To change, improve – attitudes, community Impact To protect Transform ideas Promote values (?) – to change the way you perceive the world To enable people to take part of To confront visions and needs To channel/ organize motivations To change or affect local social policies; To get access to information To create sense of belonging (be part of…) In what people participate Initial phaseIdentifies the problem Common rules/ goals vision Decision process Planning phase Priorities decision Implementation - monitoring (action) Evaluation/ follow up Other ideas Relevant to people; How open (flexible); Scale, context, external factors.
Summarising the objectives of the project and identification of the “key” elements: next seminar in Barcelona, in April. Work on the virtual Platform in order to share the how of our practices, create groups of collaborative work, and identify the topics of interest in order to plan the next seminar. Presentation of the actual situation of the platform. Discussion in order to adapt the platform to the needs of the project and the participants. Create a common calendar for the following activities until the next seminar.
