Attendees were assigned to 6 groups, so each NGO worked with 3 teams. The workshop was divided into two stages: research and ideation. We started on Friday evening with the research. Each group met and interviewed their partner from one of the NGOs. This step was crucial, as there was no specific topic of the workshop. Attendees had to understand the situation of the organisation, the issues it faces every day in order to propose a solution tailored to the NGO’s needs. The next day the creative process started.
During just one weekend the attendees created a wide range of solutions for NGOs. Teams working with the association Natura i Człowiek performed a target group analysis and an analysis of future challenges. They created a sales presentation and a plan for developing a network of people supporting the association. Aneta Sikora from Natura i Człowiek says:
The workshop with Objectivity was a great chance for us to gain new, exciting experiences. We had a chance to meet people who work in different fields and it gave us a new perspective on the development of our organisation. Now, we have a new know-how and we are inspired to act in the areas which were previously out of our reach, or at least we thought so. Thank you for giving us the opportunity for a continuous development.
Groups working with Przystanek Rodzina created a plan for an educational game, performed an analysis of the organisational structure and shared their know-how regarding the improvement of the processes inside the NGO.
Before the workshop we were very excited and curious how working with experts will look like. We were delighted by the warm welcome, a great desire to solve organisational problems and the engagement of the attendees who really listened to us and started creating solutions right away. We had a feeling that our issues are the most important thing for them at that moment. We had known that there was a room for improvement and the attendees helped us sort many things out. We have already started: we got a lot of new contacts and met people who are willing to help. We have already signed one volunteering agreement and we moved forward with our new website. We are working on a new strategy for additional social media accounts. We are also planning some activities together with Natura I Człowiek. It was a great weekend! Thank you for TONS of inspirations!, said Monika Krzysztanowicz from Przystanek Rodzina.
