Programme Idea 1

1)Top Priorities

This is a short discussion exercise to get people warmed up and to introduce them to the issues. Divide the Unit into two's and three's and give each group a set of nine statements on separate pieces of paper (sample statements). The group should then sort them into order of importance to create a fair, peaceful and sustainable future, using the diamond shape below.

Most Important

 Least Important

When the groups have finished (10 to 20 minutes should be sufficient) compare the results with the rest of the Unit.

Is there agreement about the priorities? Are any of the statements linked?
How much do the actions of the rich countries affect the lives of people in the poorer countries?
