Our Times is the new campaign from young people around Woodcraft Folk, who want to give other young people a platform to be heard on social and political issues including war. The aim is to enable young people to educate each other on the issues they care about, and enable wider society to hear and respect young people's views.
We've put together a range of activities to get your Venturer group thinking about society and what they care about most in it. Download the PDF below.
Time taken: 30 minutes to play and at least 15 minutes for reflection.
Equipment: About 80 sweets (small, individually wrapped, variety to suit all tastes)
This game is designed to simulate international negotiations. It is based on "Prisoners Dilema" type experiments from economics.
Annual Gathering is the democratic heart of the Woodcraft Folk, but it’s so much more than that. As well as celebrating our achievements over the past year & electing our General Council, we discuss future plans for the movement, share skills & experiences, and enjoy each other’s company in true Woodcraft style.
2012 is the International Year of Co-operatives, and the biggest event of the year is Co-operatives United, a huge festival of co-operatives from all over the world. It should be a memorable and inspiring event, and a chance to meet co-operators from countries and organisations we've never worked with before.
This year's second Development Conference is happening at the YHA in Bristol. It will be a chance for all Woodcraft members, whatever their age and role in Woodcraft Folk, to get together for socialising, workshops, discussions on current Woodcraft topics, and generally sharing ideas and friendship.
