Using multiple languages during a workshop
It isn't easy to communicate with target audiences in multiple languages during a workshop. The following video shows extracts from a BeWater workshop in Cyprus. Both Greek and English were used simultaneously as the workshop languages to ensure that participants felt comfortable expressing their ideas and contributing to the outcomes. Martin Watson from SW Visions was part of the facilitation team put together by BeWater project partner, PROSPEX.
The BeWater project promotes dialogue and collaboration between science and society for sustainable water management and adaptation to the impacts of global change in the Mediterranean, using an iterative process of mutual learning, participatory techniques and a bottom-up approach.
