‘My Future, My Oceans’ is a tool for fostering behaviour change, for use by villages and government which seek to foster sustainable behaviours in low-resource coastal households.
The tool is a low-cost process of behavioural diagnosis and capacity enhancing - comprising the training of facilitators to deliver workshops, the running of workshops to empower villagers and the evaluation of outcomes. The tool empowers individuals in coastal villages to adopt behaviours that lead to healthier families, happier lives and a cleaner environment.
It is used when there is a need to promote sustainable behaviours — waste management, fisheries practices, healthier choices.
A three-day course trains facilitators to deliver workshops with village ‘heroes’ in communities. It comprises four modules (or blocks) for empowering positive behaviours, followed by a day dedicated to designing, delivering and evaluating a specific program.
Block 1: My village
Block 3: My family
Block 4: My future
Facilitators will also be equipped with the core skills and competencies necessary to confidently deliver the program on their own. In essence, the workshop will provide a safe environment with productive feedback to practice their delivery of content and the ability to coordinate activities. This includes exercises, guidance, mentoring from previous facilitators and Q & A with trainers.
On the third day participants are assisted to tailor the program to their own local community. This includes techniques for evaluating and reporting outcomes from using the tool.
Duration: 3 days
