How do you run a meeting (in person or online) where everyone is included and engaged?   

People want to be part of an organisation where they have a sense of belonging and their contribution is valued.  

When we work well together, we achieve better outcomes.

Liberating Structures are tools to help improve the way we meet, plan, decide and relate to each other. They ensure that everyone has a voice and takes into account other people's voices in order to shape the next steps together.  

This workshop will be run by David Bennett (trainer, facilitator and Aoraki Green Party member) and Rosemary Neave (Port Hills Branch Campaign Volunteer Coordinator). It will give you a taste of some of the classic Liberating Structures to help you design and facilitate welcoming and effective meetings. This experience will be useful for anyone who runs meetings or organises volunteers. It will give you new ways to creatively engage people to shape the future, our future.
