- SESSION ONE – 21 JUNE – A series of creative exercises to help you write the ﬁrst draft of your story.
- SESSION TWO – 22 JUNE – In peer groups you will get valuable feedback on your first draft, using a powerful listening approach (head, heart and feet), adding new angles and depth to incorporate into your second draft.
- SESSION THREE – 23 JUNE – Peer feedback on your second draft will be focused on the Action Learning Cycle to draw out interesting reﬂections and learning to incorporate into the third draft. Elements from the Writing Guide are emphasized to support your next draft.
- SESSION FOUR – 28 JUNE – You will bring your third draft for a last round of feedback and get tips for polishing it up for the final draft.
Through this writing class presented by the FAO Family Farming & Agroecology Community of Practice and Barefoot Guide Connection, agroecology practitioners will learn how to write their own real-life stories on how agroecology helps the achievement of food security and nutrition.
Following the principle of co-creating and sharing of knowledge, the class will teach agroecology participants how to write their real stories with their own words. The peer-to-peer exchange of knowledge will increase practitioners’ ownership in communicating their agroecology stories of change.
Doug Reeler and Beulah Tertiens-Reeler have facilitated Barefoot Guide Writeshops and coaching and editing support for writers for the past ten years.
