22 - 24 March 2019
The Yarra Young Initiators kicked off by setting our circle, acknowledging country and working out a group agreement. This circle came to represent our shared values of respect, open-mindedness, participation and listening throughout the intensive.
Day two was all about interacting with others. The hoodie roleplay opened up a discussion about how we interpret and respond to differences in our society.
Our focus for day three was community and active citizenship. Our ‘community maps’ helped us think in detail about who we feel connected to and how we maintain important relationships in our lives. This provided a great base for the ‘Fired-up map’, which identified the issues that got us ‘fired up’.
