It can be tough to start conversations out of the blue. With this simple and visual exercise, you can get people to open up easier – even on topics that can be difficult to talk about. This exercise is suitable for groups of all sizes.

  1. Spread out a set of Magnum cards on an outdoor area, e.g. in a yard or a park.
  2. Ask the participants to choose a card each as an answer to one of the following questions:
    • What can get you in a good mood?
    • What does hope mean to you?
    • What is the most important right you have as a human being?
    • What does happiness mean to you?
    • What is the biggest dream that has come true for you?
  3. Ask the participants to form groups of three.
  4. Send the teams off on a walk in the area while they present their choices. Make sure they have plenty of time to tell their story – the walk can easily take 20 minutes.
  5. When a team returns, ask them to place their three cards in a row and consider what symbolism and features their stories share.
  6. When everyone has returned, you ask each group to present their discussion in plenum.
