Seeing familiar faces appear one after the other in their little square boxes on my computer screen, last week, I could not help but smile at the memory of my first AWoN meetings – and all they were to bring along.
An answer to needs
Redesigned on the basis of the original cohort members’ feedback, Home Groups, which first pilot was just launched at the end of November, aim at both answering Practitioners’ need to connect, nurture and strengthen their bond and integrating future members.
Groups of up to ten participants will thus be meeting four times during the next thirteen weeks. The 90-minute video-call, hosted by a volunteer member, will be dedicated to personal sharing of experiences, reflections, feelings as well as collaborative learning, exchange and topics of relevance for their work in A World of Neighbours. In between meetings, participants will conduct weekly one-on-one call with a peer of the group.
