Meet & Stroll: Making choices
Wed 17 March 2021, 17:00 - 18:00
We can still take a walk in the neighborhood! Time to get out and about, meet new neighbors and discover north-east Utrecht! In this light-hearted dialogue series Meet & Stroll, you will meet different people from the neighborhood and discover new places as we walk together towards a new spring!
Making worthwhile choices
In this third Meet & Stroll dialogue we talk about making worthwhile choices. What makes choices worthwhile? When is it worthwhile to make your voice heard? For yourself, for others, for society? How do you make choices and what is important when you do? Is it the people, the values, past experiences, promises for the future, the program, or something else entirely? The introduction and preparation via Zoom will take place on 17 March, the day of the elections. You plan a walk at a time that suits you and your partner.
Routes to choose from

- Get to know one another: Who are you? What makes choices worthwhile for you? How do you make choices and what is important for you when you do?
- Share experiences: Tell your partner about a time when you had to make a choice that was really worthwhile. What made this choice possible, worthwhile and what was the outcome?
- Dream together: What choice would you most like to make? What would be different if you could make this choice?
- Do: What can you do to bring this dream closer? What is the first step you can take?
- Evaluate: What will you take away from this conversation?
How does it work?
- In a first relaxing online meeting, we will get to know each other, get to know “Meet and Stroll”, and get familiar with the theme of the first stroll. The meeting will take place online via Zoom on the third Wednesday of the month from 4 – 5 pm. Think of a question you would like to get asked by the way of a first introduction. And what would you like to know about the other person?
- You agree to go for an in-person walk in the neighborhood with a neighbor. This stroll will take place on the following Saturday at 10:30 am. You will receive a suggestion in advance for a meeting point, route, and a guide with questions about the theme of this Meet and Stroll. The guidelines are based on the principles of appreciative inquiry.
- In the next relaxed online meeting, we will harvest what the Meet & Stroll has brought to everyone, meet new participants, and introduce the theme of the next Meet & Stroll. Do you have any special requests? Suggestions for places or routes? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
