Done in twenty

The opinions of the article do not necessarily reflect the position of Trajectorya. This post is the result of a co-operative learning exercise developed by participants of the Training Course “Mind Your Business” Developing Learning competences for social entrepreneurship (Estonia, July 2012).

The team decided that no specific strategy was needed for such an easy mission. It turned out that we were quite right, as we accomplished the challenge in about 20 minutes.

First exchange:

Who: Jaak & his friend: Estonian couple in their twenties sunbathing by the Liberty Monument

Object: balloon for a green pen

Key to success: direct question, a bit of background explanation

Second exchange:

Who: Marika & her friend: middle-aged Estonian couple chatting on a bench in the city centre

Object: green pen for black pen

Key to success: same as above

Third exchange:

Who: Mairi: Volunteer at Traveller Info Centre & Tours

Object: black pen for pack of tea

Key to success: some explanations, chatting

Some failures:

One lady reading a book simply said that she didn’t have time

Two girls selling tourist guides and almonds said they had nothing that could be exchanged

Fourth mission:

Refreshing cold Estonian beer!  🙂

The A Team: Sasha, Ramon, Tadas and Piotr.
