Glucola Youth Group: discussions about the possibility of building
a decentralized value chain comprising youth groups.

Diagram used to present the notion of decentralized value chain.

A tree (Reflect methodology) being employed to
analyze the idea of decentralized value chain.

Reflect is an innovative approach to adult learning and social change, which
fuses the theories of Paulo Freire with the methodologies of participatory rural
appraisal. A wide range of participatory methodologies is used within a Reflect
process to help create an open, democratic environment in which everyone is
able to contribute. One of the most applied methodologies in Reflect is the tree;
this is a universally recognized symbol with clear metaphorical meanings, which
people can use to explore issues or processes from a new angle. The various
elements of a tree working together in a cycle are a basic metaphor for almost
any situation to be analyzed: the trunk usually symbolizes the situation to be
studied; the roots represent inputs, whether that be causes of a situation, past
events leading up to it, or things necessary for its existence, or income; the
branches are the consequences or outputs of the situation, or expenditure.
