Facilitating for the Swedish Institute and the Council of the Baltic Sea States Secretariat

The BalticLab group outside of our working space, Turning Torso. During April 14th Evelina and Gayathri facilitated a full day group dynamic session for the joint BalticLab programme launched in cooperation between the Council of the Baltic Sea States Secretariat in Stockholm and the Swedish Institute. The goal of the program is to strengthen collaborations and networks between young professionals within the Baltic region. After a ruff selection process, the Swedish Institute selected 20 sharp professionals who where  given the opportunity to participate in the programme. The participants represent Sweden, Russia, Lithuania and Poland. The programme consists of three modules and we facilitated parts of the first module.

The purpose of the day was for the participants to really get to know each other in-depth regarding values, personality types, sharing their personal life visions and their visions for the Baltic region in order to form project groups at the end of the day.  It was an intensive day, the participants had to work hard and keep focus and they did a brilliant job. They only had one day to get to know each other and to form groups based on values and visions.

During the coming months the group will meet again in Lithuania and in Russia for module 2 and 3. We are looking forward to following the progress.

Good luck BalticLab, it was a blast for us to contribute to this important programme.
