Workshops

We set up fun workshops to tackle challenging topics, helping you create deeper understanding and meaningful connection in the search for common ground.

The problem, our solution

Often debating is seen as a battle, a clash of ideas and personalities. The 21st century TV political debate has gone this way, showing us that substance matters little in the face of style, carefully laid out arguments merely ripple the water, while snappy one-liners storm the media.

This rubs off on us. In our day-to-day lives and on the web, on family and discussion groups, the same sterile "debating" happens all the time to the point we sometimes don't prefer to engage at all.

To solve this issue, we use the principle of guided discovery, prompting participants to take part in factual and rational workshops, while challenging assumptions and prompting them to draw their own conclusions. All with an engaging and interactive twist! We learn best by having fun :)

Guided Discovery

A good discussion begins when we accept we do not have all the answers.

This is:

  • A quest for deeper understanding
  • A safe space for talking and sharing
  • A facts-based approach
  • A collaborative endeavour
  • A search for common ground

Ground rules

  • We all have opinions, and that's ok
  • No one "wins" an argument
  • Listen first, speak later
  • Focus on the idea, not the person
  • Diversity of perspectives is a strength

How, who, what, when, where

  • How

    🧠 Workshops follow the principle of collaborative guided discovery , an active process for learning and debating in groups. Fun and engagement guaranteed!
  • What topics are covered

    Depends on the workshop! We cover topics in the media and political literacy fields. Check out the past and upcoming events above to have an idea!
  • Where

    All workshops are in-person in order to increase engagement. A flexible format means a workshop can happen in any sized room, but the amount of participants should be no more than a few dozen, in order to maximise impact.
  • Who this is for

    • Citizens interested in media and political literacy
    • Citizens seeking deeper understanding
    • Citizens wishing to sharpen their critical thinking
    • Teachers aiming to foster critical thinking in their students
  • When

    We organise and lead workshops whenever there is demand for them, providing we have the time and resources to organise them. We can also assist you in setting them up yourself.
