What Contributes to Peacebuilding?

Materials: A4 or A5 paper, felt-tip pens


Exercise description

The participants are given three pieces of paper and asked to write in large legible letters three things they recognise in their societies as contributing to peacebuilding. All the pieces of paper are spread out on the floor and then they have a plenary discussion about: “How do you feel about what was written down? What are the priorities and what are things that in your opinion do not contribute to peacebuilding at all?”


Type of exercise:


45-90 min


The pieces of paper with the keywords can also be used for the exercise “Large barometer: Peacebuilding” (see description
