I learned this from Jon Ander Musatadi, a young cooperative entrepreneur from the LEINN program at Mondragon University in Euskadi.

The idea of this activity is to help participants focus on their "Why?" -- the dream or aspiration that drives them -- and give them support from their peers.

The Joker asks participants to write on a piece of paper the answer to this question:

  • If money did not exist, what would you be doing right now?

When all have written, each person passes their paper to the left. Then, each writes five sentences in support of what the person has written. Encouragement, reasons why they should pursue their dream, anything that will be supportive.
