There is an open conflict between the two groups of people on the island. The Ones have built things and the Others have destroyed them. Each group has their reasons to behave this way, and they have to reach a win/win agreement satisfactory for both parties.
- Conflict resolution
- Making things better
- Analysing and reflecting
The whole group is sat together, they are their normal selves again (not the characters they were playing). Facilitators make a reminder of the conflict lived in Activity A/Way (especially if the two activities are not done on the same day).
60 minutes (shorter in case of young children)
They are presented the terms of the agreement reached in Activity A/Way.
Do they agree with them?
Do they think this is the best possible solution?
Are the rights and necessities of everybody respected in the agreement?
Divide the participants in smaller groups and ask them to debate if there is any way to improve the terms of the agreement. Can you come up with a better solution?
Resources and materials:
- Flipchart paper.
- A room.
Notes and tips for the facilitators:
- If you want to use this as a separate activity, the conflict can be introduced by representing it as a theatre scene.
- Then the whole group sits together and the facilitators bring out certain situations, for example:
- The houses were destroyed. What can we do to maintain respect? What can we do to avoid violence?
- Resources are stolen. What can we do to stop the abuse of power? What can we do to have the necessities of everybody respected?
- Difficulties to reach to a common agreement. What can we do to reach a common ground?
- What is equality and what is justice?
- To discuss each of the situations, the participants are divided in smaller groups and assigned a different topic, they try to reach a resolution and present it in plenary. The other participants can try to improve it.
