"This was an opportunity for Dialogue Fiji to review its priorities, and analyse and strengthen its current path" said DF Project Officer George Nacewa.
The Dialogue Fiji Committee and Secretariat convened over two days last week at the Tanoa Plaza Hotel, to go over the 'next steps' for Dialogue Fiji.
Over the two days, the Dialogue Fiji Committee Members and Secretariat had the opportunity to review its activities from January through to September 2013.
Together they discussed the many successes and lessons learned through out this period and how they could move forward with the Vision and Mission of Dialogue Fiji
"It was also a great opportunity for the Secretariat to present an exercise on Partners mapping" added Mr Nacewa
"This is where we map out current or similar spaces and work conducted by other CSOs and NGOs in Fiji, which will inevitably paint us a clearer picture of what needs to be done and where."
The Planning Meeting also provided a space for Dialogue Fiji to look at its 2014 Calendar of Events and Resolutions for the future.
From the 23rd to the 27th of September, a few facilitators from in and around Fiji gathered to explore the meaning and value of Dialogue in the Fijian context, and more specifically the Dialogue Fiji approach. It was a great opportunity for the Dialogue Fiji Secretariat and Committee to identify participants who will be able to lead, or co-lead, national dialogue events: to see who might be able to conduct Dialogue Forums in the future. It was an intense, spiritually and intellectually fulfilling week with lots of fun memories. For pictures of the event please click on this link /dialogue-events-in-pictures.html
Over the next couple of weeks, Dialogue Fiji will be profiling trained "Dialogue in Fiji" facilitators. Here is a shot of the whole group! We hope you enjoy reading their profiles as much as we enjoyed putting them together!
