Please indicate your World Café experience (ONLY IF YOU HAVE ACTUAL WORLD CAFE EXPERIENCE) in one or more of the following roles:
If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
Art of Hosting Facebook group is how I got to follow more closely Ria, Amy and Michaela´s work. Also I research Large group methods extensively so the website as such I knew it since a long time ago.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
We are working in Madrid to create a community of facilitation practicioners and reserachers. I´m not sure if such communities exists in other cities. If they do, I think they should be interconnected globally. I just had the idea of the possibility of holding regular face to face World Cafés in Medialab Prado... still wondering what the topics/focus could be.. Maybe citizen participation in Madrid, yes. There is an absolute madness going in Madrid in relation to participatory processes. I´m still not sure what I would like to contribute, but I do have a vision of thriving facilitators communities in the cities, quartiers and villages that are interconnected globally. We need to remake communities and build and effective participatory global democracy to face global challenges like climate change while defusing the global fascist existential threat.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
Knowledge about facilitation and online facilitation + connecting with fellow facilitation practitioners around the world. I´m interested in the methodologies themselves, but even more than that, I´m interested in seen them applied directly to processes of spiritual and sociopolitical global transformation.
I´m just grateful for all the work this amazing community has been doing for years. We need to show that JUSTICE and DEMOCRACY are the way to articulate a collaborative leadership that allow people to create the solutions that are needed. Participatory democracy and grassroots empowerment is the antidote and the alternative to fascism. We need to lose fear, think calmly, feel deeply, recognize our unity and develop a vision of the future and the society we DO want. Quality grassroots global dialogues are key in this awakening process. I would to recommend you a book: "The Gandhian Iceberg" from Christopher Moore-Backman. You will love it :-)
