Using Post-it notes

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Transition Town Totnes colour code their Post-it notes to correspond with topics people can contribute ideas on. Upon arrival, they give people four different coloured Post-it notes without initially explaining what they are for in order to build a sense of anticipation. Pink Post-it notes are for ideas on “one thing I can do”, yellow for “one thing Totnes can do”, orange for “one thing Government can do” and green for “one other thought”. After the event, they type up the contributions and email them out to everyone who attended. This helps to demonstrate that everyone’s thoughts are being taken on board and are part of something bigger, while keeping ideas fresh in people’s minds.
