The aim of this session is to celebrate with your network the achievements reached so far. It’s the end of a series of intense co-creation workshops, show the local community that you appreciate their contribution and you care about building a lasting bond, based not only on discussing strategic, sustainable development, but also trust and open communication
What do you need?
Pack your suitcase:
Third Local Workshop
Invite your colleagues, stakeholders and other friends from the ecosystem around your cultural heritage to lunch or dinner. You have achieved an important milestone.
Enjoy it together!
You can prepare an infographic summarising the joint work, make an exhibition of photos from all workshops, and recall the earliest ideas for actions that you discussed a few months ago.
Here you will find a list of a few suggestions on how to spend time together, enjoying the unique genius loci, the magic of local cultural and natural heritage, and finding a moment of forgetfulness thanks to local cuisine.
Circular creative workshop
Find and invite an Origami artist and ask him/her to make a super quick workshop with the participants or just to make some origami pieces. Now the paper is not garbage anymore.
You have closed a loop!
Relax your mind
If your participants (and you!) are tired of long work, you can suggest very simple physical and relaxation exercises.
Perhaps, as part of the dinner at the end of the workshop, you will invite a specialist offering laughing yoga exercises or short mindfulness sessions.
Natural heritage and open-air activities
Make advantage of the summer. Maybe you can host an outdoor dinner at your Heritage Site or in a forest nearby?
Think about “sensorial heritage experience” your community could test.
Discover the night!
If you are planning the final dinner in the evening, you may invite an expert from the local sky observatory to explain to the community the beauty of what’s above your head.
Raise awareness on how the sky pollution disrupts wildlife, impacts our health, and contributes to climate change and to the waste of energy.
Psst! This module should not be the next working session.
A little something to remember
Together with local artists and artisans, you may prepare small yet meaningful gifts for the participants. For example, illustrating the „closed loops” in circular tourism.
Gather Town - you can use the free trial of this tool to have an enjoyable community experience around fully customizable online spaces. Take a look!
Chopped - send the participants boxes of mystery ingredients, and ask them to wait until this last module to open the packages. Give the participants 15-20 minutes to assemble the dishes. All should have cameras on while cooking. The host may ask questions or provide running commentary. Once everyone is ready, all final
dishes are presented (and eaten).
Online cooking school - invite a chef from a good local restaurant to present some innovative recipes. Ideally, they should refer to a new approach to the local cuisine. By the way, you can ask the invited guest about the practices of not wasting food. You can also send participants the boxes of ingredients that you will use or a list of them in advance.
Non-humans in human centred workshops - Ask the participants to show to the camera and introduce their pets that also took part in the workshop. Take this as an opportunity to interact. You can for example ask the participants to create a Spotify playlist for humans and their pets with local and world music.
Auto draw - Have some fun with this AI based visual tool. If you want to make reference to your Action Plan, ask participants to draw one chosen action or one asset that the action is linked to in the auto draw mode. Then ask them to choose a picture suggested by the software and save it. Then ask the participants to show their picture to the rest. At the end, you can create a gallery of all your associations.
