The public body for the protection of the environment had a project in which different companies and organisation from all across Slovenia were involved. The project was very large and the companies didn’t know each other so they turned to us to lighten up the conference and break up the hard lectures and workshops. The team building had to be fun but also give the participants a chance to mix and get to know each other.
We decided to give them a creative team building as a surprise for the attendees in the adjacent conference hall. Sometimes it’s important to catch the attendees off-guard with the challenges. This is especially important when they don’t know each other, so the surprise effects them in a way that they open up to each other easier. They had a team building of making their own car that will be suited for the task of saving grasslands (which was the theme of the main project). They built their cars which was in line with the cision and goals of the project and alos made them their own. Beside building the car they had to trade and bargain for extra material which gave the game a more dynamic feel and boosted the cooperation. It was an excellent addition to the conference and also gave a chance to the participants to get to know each other.
