A daily quiz
A creative daily quiz by Acting Together - Transforming Our World is helping to draw visitors to the exhibit hall area of the Assembly.
The Acting Together - Transforming Our World booth in the exhibit hall at the Assembly has come up with a creative way to educate people and bring more visitors to its booth at the same time: a daily quiz.
The booth brings together seven ecumenical "umbrella" agencies dealing with a variety of issues. One of those agencies, Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, did the quiz for the first day, 14 Feb., dealing with HIV/AIDs, and Action for Churches Together followed with a quiz on natural disaster concerns on 15 Feb. Anyone bringing a completed quiz form (answers are available at the booth) received a free wristband.
"The quizzes were an idea we had of an engaging way to get people to think about issues we work on, and to encourage people to come to this exhibit area," said Linda Hartke, coordinator of Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance.
A different agency, with a differently colored wristband, will be featured in the quiz each day. Eight quizzes will be done in all. There will be none on Sunday or on one day when the WCC will be distributing white wristbands in recognition of global poverty.
