Week 4 SDWC check-in 🌷
Hello, how are your weeks going?
How is everyone? I just wanted to check in to see how everyone is getting on.
Was the feedback we gave on the situation analyses useful?
In the videos this week I chat about the mountain chicken, which is not a chicken but a frog! If you've never had the pleasure of knowing about the mountain chicken, then here is some more info about it.
A quick poll for you: Which of the following do you think is the most important in preventing a project from achieving maximum impact?
- A lack of a clearly defined objective
- A lack of an ambitious enough objective
- An incomplete strategy which misses key things which need to be considered
- A lack of expertise or skills to develop a comprehensive strategy.
IMPORTANT TASK FOR ALL BEFORE NEXT LIVE SESSION
In the next live session, we will be developing our theory of changes. This will be a lot easier if you have a) read and reflected on the feedback given on the situation analyses, b) made any changes you want to your situation analyses, and c) done the exercise within the week 4 videos of adding the scope, biodiversity target result and 3 threat results to your theory of change. Any questions, please ask.
ZOOM BACKGROUNDS CHALLENGE
A mini-challenge for you, if you are willing to accept... in the next live session, set your zoom background as an image or video related to what you are creating a conceptual model about. This was started by a participant a few workshops back and it went down well. Not compulsory! I'm thinking giant earthworms, dreamy coral reefs and beautiful sun bears. Details on how to do this here. It doesn't work for everyone, for me, my hair disappears into the green wall and I look bald!
