To evaluate some event on level of feelings (training, seminar, EVS)

Description of the tool

On a flipcharts you draw a map of different colours of Islands. Each Island represents different feeling (boredom, hapiness, curiosity, exitement, stress...) and few are without feeling that participants in case of need can name them themselves.

Each participant is asked to build own ship from paper and put ther his/her name. Then to apoint the place on which Island (feeling) they were on the beginning of the project (EVS, seminar)with a cross(X). From this point they mark they travel by dashed line around which Islands they were sailing (feelings they had) during next days (weeks, months). For better orientation each participant should have different colour or line style. And on the end of they travel they put their boat on the Island (feeling) where they are at the moment.

Of course during the journey they can come to some Islands more times or sail around for longer time, let them be creative.
If you have more time and specially in smaller groups it good if they have time to explain their journey and maybe the reasons for their feelings.
