Cohort thoughts

Here’s some things the participants said:



Everyone in the cohort developed their own project by working through the EBE Project Toolkit on Miro. Miro is a collaborative white-boarding tool. The worksheets contain prompts to help you develop your project. There are 4 worksheets, each covering a different phase:

  1. Discovery - understand your organisation and clients better
  2. Ideation - develop ideas that include people with lived experience
  3. Prioritisation - prioritise ideas based on impact versus investment
  4. Planning - sketch out a plan to help shape and start your project

View and use the EBE Project Toolkit

If you want to use the EBE Project Toolkit on Miro, you'll need to sign up to Miro, then duplicate the board. If you want to work on paper, here is a print version of the EBE Project Toolkit (PDF). Here is the Refugee Action example project.
