100 Ways to Energise Groups

Facilitators use games to help people get to know each other (‘icebreakers’), increase their energy or enthusiasm levels (‘energisers’), encourage team building, or make people think about a specific issue.

This publication is one in a series of resources from the International HIV/AIDS Alliance to encourage participation in practice. It is a compilation of exercises that can be used by anyone working with groups of people, whether in a workshop, meeting or community setting. It sets out to build practical skills, provide a training resource and continue learning. It is packed with effective, fun ideas such as the yes/no game, ‘leading and guiding’ and ‘what am I feeling’?

This guide includes all these different types of

games – in no particular order – and facilitators can

pick and choose those that are most appropriate for

their specific purpose and context.
