Creating a safe space
"It was the wonderful, unusual atmosphere here that surprised me – and made such a difference!"
Workshop participant, South Caucasus
All aspects of an integrated security workshop, from its design to implementation to the follow-up phase, are equally important in creating a safe, respectful environment for participants. Each step sends a message to workshop participants that they are respected and valued.
The working spaces should be safe, welcoming and extremely comfortable, allowing participants to relax, let go of the worries of their daily life and focus on the workshop. It also transmits a message of respect for the participants.
