Creating attractive and compelling images to share on social media used to be a time consuming issue for me. And those who know me know that I am always taking on more than I can reasonably expect myself to be able to do.
So wasting time trying to find images without breaching copyright and putting them together with the words I want to share has been what I thought was a necessary frustration.
That is why I am so in love with Canva. https://www.canva.com/
Don’t judge me
You have to understand that I’m not a graphic designer and what I can produce is somewhat templated but it’s a lot better than what I have produced unassisted so I’m pretty happy. The thing that makes me happiest is that it is so quick.
Social media is such a great way to share concepts and ideas and I’d like to challenge all mediators in Australia to produce at least one piece of original content to share under the #AuMAW2016 and #Mediation hash tags.
I’d love to see a game of Virtual Volley Ball during Mediation Awareness Week 2016 where we keep content about mediation in the cloud. You can play by sharing, re-tweeting and encouraging your friends, acquaintances and strangers to do the same. If you want a world filled with more peace and understanding the best way to get it is to contribute to building the belief that it is possible.
Negotiation and litigation are processes designed to reduce your choices in order to reach a settlement and usually the most powerful gets the best outcome.
Mediation is a process that is focused on increasing understanding about what matters to each party to a dispute, encourages exploration of the many options available before empowering the people impacted by the decision to decide the best option for them to try and resolve their dispute and be at peace with each other.
By increasing awareness of mediation and the different styles of mediation we increase the number of people who will feel empowered to make the choice to genuinely try mediation first.
Share your social media images on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram or your other prefered platform during Australian Mediation Awareness Week 7th to the 13th December
