Description of the tool

Description of the tool
During the final sessions before dinner, every participant could fill their river, there will be a box and a facilitator will give each participant his/her river.

Key questions:
*How did you feel today?
*What was your learning of the day?
*What was the biggest challenge?

The facilitator can add some funny questions or other relevant ones.

Another part of the reflection is that facilitators will read the comments of each one.
