Description of the tool

In the welcome pack all participants were given a name badge to complete.
Each participant puts his/her name badge in the middle of the circle and on the floor. Then the facilitator shouts ‘go’ and every participant grabs a badge and then continues to find the person who’s badge they picked up (It will be important to remind participants that if they pick up their own badge they should quickly put it back in the middle). Once they have found the person whose the badge belongs to they ask them ‘where they come from’, ‘how long it took them to get to the venue’ and ‘how many different types of transport they used to get there’.


  • It can help if trainers and organisers arrive at the table with their own cards and remind participants to have theirs for the table. The cards can continually be used throughout the training.

  • If you have time it can be a good idea to return to the circle for participants to share those badge they had and the answer the questions on travel time and methods.
