32 Young People Will Look For Creative Solutions To Kadıköy’s Urban Problems
In this context, 32 young people in total met for the first time this Sunday in Kadıköy and successfully completed the first phase of the workshop. As the first day activities, the participants were aimed to get to know each other and to integrate. After the preliminary meeting, the game “Who am I?”, which aims getting to know each other more closely and discover their common tastes was played. The participants, who had the opportunity to get to know each other in the first part of the workshop, started with an energizer to the second stage.
After the small teambuilding activities organized for young people to work with each other more comfortably throughout the project, a group activity called “Mission Impossible” was held. In these group activities, the participants were divided into teams of 6 and were asked to complete the tasks assigned to them. After this activity, where many creative poems, dances and performances took place, the participants got used to working with each other. At the end of the day, they came together for a final event. The activity called “Balloon”, which is applied for creative and solution-oriented thinking ability, was the last activity of the day.
After the first session, which was calmer and softer than the sessions to be held in the future, the participants got to know the people they would work with in a short time and got the chance to work together. In this way, it was aimed to demolish the walls between people before proceeding to problem determination and producing solutions.
