In this session, we will learn how we all affect the group atmosphere with our self-expression andbecome more aware of how we can all create a safer and more comfortable atmosphere. We will also learn about different games and other trust-building exercises and will create safe space rules.
“The students felt bolder [2. Session] in the activities because they already had experience from the previous activity. Therefore, they were more active, and more interested.” (Lithuania)
Explaining the concept of a safe space
The aim of this class is to become more aware of how we all affect the atmosphere with our self-expression and how we can all create a safer and more comfortable atmosphere. It may be a good idea to create safe space rules together with the participants. This gives us a sense of empowerment, which ultimately builds up confidence and it is easier to commit to rules you have had a say about.
