Exercise: Planning a Share Fair
Share Fairs are participatory events that enable participants to gain new skills and understanding and to learn from other participants. For Share Fairs to be successful, they need to be well planned, and the topic needs to be responsive to a need expressed by the target audience. Prior to holding a Share Fair, it is important to determine the following: the audience(s), the main issues that need to be discussed, the goal for the event, and the knowledge management (KM) tools and techniques your event will include. This is the groundwork for the Share Fair, which is covered in this exercise. Information discussed in this exercise can then be used to draft a concept note, design an agenda, and plan logistics for the Share Fair.
