A BRIDGE workshop is interactive and dynamic. The BRIDGE methodology encourages participation and recognises that participants have valuable knowledge and experience to share. The role of the BRIDGE facilitator is not to stand up the front and do all the talking, but rather to draw out the variety of knowledge in the room and to facilitate the sharing of ideas and ways of thinking differently. BRIDGE activities may involve brainstorming, role playing, debating, physical activity, quiet contemplation, problem-solving, storytelling or many other elements. A BRIDGE workshop is also designed to be inclusive, supportive and friendly.
