I'm a very new host and have only hosted 2 virtual World Cafe (with the amazing Amy and Michaela as the leaders), but yes, my goal is to facilitate and probably more of my gift would be to stimulate, our World Cafe Community here to facilitate Wiser Together World Cafes.  

Dave maybe we can hop on a phone call sometime this week?  I'm hosting my first, low key, Wiser Together Design Cafe, with some other superb hosts on Dec 15th here in Asheville.

P.S. Thank you Michaela and Juanita for the best wishes!  Y'all are the best!  I'm feeling wiser merely in your virtual company.

Happy birthday Ty!

Are you looking to host inter-gen conversations in your area? Or join online ones? Both? I've hosted 1-2 Wiser Together Cafes per year for the past 5 years or so in California. They always seem to gather a good group of people, and surely will provide a rich learning opportunity for all! If you are not yet hosting inter-gen cafes in your area and would like to, I want to support you. 

Best, David

Hi Ty....Happy Birthday!!!

I'm looking forward to our local opportunities....and we might want to ask Amy, once we have a regular host (are you still doing that Augusto?) to send an invitation to our whole Wiser Together sub-list so that they can join these conversations--once we begin to frame questions that a variety of folks can participate in.

Sending fond regards!

Happy Birthday, Ty! Hope you are enjoying a beautiful day, full of surprises, and fun, and learning...

Happy Birthday, Ty!!!

Today I'm 34!  I live in Asheville and a major part of my mission and 4 year plan is to enter into more Wiser Together conversations.  It's so great for me to have seniors and youngsters all in between connecting and creating collective wisdom. Let me know if you have any ideas for how I can fulfill my mission.

Wiser Together Cafe: Partnering Across Generations For Our Common Future

Capitol Hilton, Washington DC

Friday August 26, 2016


All of us, whatever our generation, are alive together at this challenging moment when our very futures and the future of our planet is at stake. This is a unique opportunity to engage in deep listening, to move beyond limiting beliefs, and to think out of the box about the power we have to shape tomorrow, together. Join us for this pioneering World Café among 40 invited older and younger leaders. This promises to be an innovative and exciting intergenerational conversation like you’ve never had before. There is no cost to participate in this special invited gathering, but space is limited. Fill out the form at and we will contact you to confirm your participation.

With Moira Allan (Pass It On Network), David Shaw (Common Ground Center, UC Santa Cruz), Stephanie Brown (Graphic Recorder), Juanita Brown & David Isaacs (Co-Founders, The World Cafe)

Brilliant questions, Dave! Not to divert energy, but to add to it, I realize we haven't mentioned the Wiser Together Online Cafe we're (Dave, Juanita, myself, Ashley, Ben and Sabine) co-hosting on New Models of Multi-Generational Collaboration and Leadership - December 9th!

Come one, come all ye multi-generational collaborators!

Here's a link to register and for more information:

Hi Dave and everyone…Thanks so much for these great questions.  I'd love to know how others in this group are engaging multi-generational collaboration or social change?  And are there others in this group who might like to help hostre or be a part of ongoing conversations--either in this space or in some other way (i.e. on-line Wiser Together Cafes)? 

With fond regards and best wishes for this upcoming holiday season,
