Who can change things?

Opportunities for action and influence on different levels

In this method, participants seek to imagine how change can be effected, who exerts influence and in what way, and what opportunities and obstacles are in place. The aim is to highlight the complexity of change, but also to motivate active participation in it. To this end, the participants map out a “landscape of actors” in the room. They assume the perspective of important actors who contribute to social change in the context of national states on different levels. They examine opportunities for action and influence on and between these levels and discuss the power relationships which govern them.
