AIMS

To get young people thinking about what loneliness is and how some young people may be lonely.

OUTCOMES

Young people will share their different perceptions of loneliness, express themselves and learn new ideas, and use discussion with peers to share their voice.

RESOURCE

Flipchart paper and pens.

Activity instructions

Hand out flipchart paper and pens to each group (there might just be one big group).

Ask them to write “WHAT IS LONELINESS?” in the middle of the paper.

Encourage the young people to write what they think loneliness is, on the flipchart paper. These could be reasons for loneliness, identifiers of loneliness, words, phrases, or even drawings.

If there is more than one group, get them to feedback the answers that have been written and discuss. If there is just one group then go through the answers f rom that group and discuss.
