Consultation exercises

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Stroudco Food Hub recommend encouraging people to bring food to share at public meetings. The room can be laid out with tablecloths which participants are encouraged to write on. During the meal a member of the core group sitting at each table leads people through the questions and subject areas that require consultation. At the end of the evening the tablecloths are typed up and circulated. These meetings have not necessarily been a forum for making decisions, but have provided very valuable input from a wide range of stakeholders to inform the decisions of the smaller management group.
