Build A Project GAME
North Richmond, Contra Costa County
Transparency of the implementation process was the key goal for this card game that encouraged community members to build a project together. Local knowledge greatly informed the identification of partnerships, funding sources and lead sponsors that could move projects forward. Community leaders obtained insight into the implementation process that can sometimes seem opaque and mysterious. This was a great tool for building trust and ensuring people felt they were part of a process from the ground floor up.
Create a matrix of partners, funding, sponsors, project ideas across the top and a blank column for project names on the left. Provide color coded cards with possible resource on each card. Provide blank cards in each category for new ideas. Break into small groups and discuss what combination will make the most successful projects!
