This toolkit is designed to help facilitators, event organizers, and those who want to spark conversation in their community around sustainable development. This is by no means an exhaustive list of all the kinds of mapping you can do, but a list of some ways we’ve found useful and productive to spark conversations in communities all over the world.If one methodology feels like it could help, feel free to edit it for your context, and use it in any way. We’d suggest sending these questions to your participants to potentially try mapping their community before coming to a training so that conversations can begin as informed as possible, though this is also an exercise that works well in groups at trainings, too.
If group members are from different communities with different water/energy/resource systems, feel free to encourage them to draw a combined system. Click here for the full toolkit.
