More about Mycelium:
Inspired by the mutualistic association between fungi and trees, Mycelium is a fun and inspirational game to allow creative conversations amongst stakeholders and to help them reflect on their own partnership journey. Playing Mycelium allows stakeholders to agree on principles, expected behaviours and actions for the partnership in a trusting atmosphere, quickly developing a common language for mutual understanding.
NOTE: No prior knowledge is required for this webinar. It is particularly helpful and interesting for facilitators and those with a background or an interest in multistakeholder partnerships.
