A group activity based on self-learning and the pleasure of discovery, with the aim to stimulate the discussion about social inclusion and the creation of a group definition of it.

Aims of the tool

I PART: To start the process it is suggested to start the session with a brainstorming on the meaning of inclusion, asking the particpant to say just one word and direclty recording it for the creation of an on-line word cloud using (we chose the shape of coloured hands but there are several ones).

Let them talk for 20 min. and then ask them to sum up their ideas creating a group and project definition ofsocial inclusion.
