In late October I hosted (with fantastic help from Kim Meredith) a group of 80 teachers in a World Cafe as part of the BC Teacher's for Peace and Global Education conference in Victoria, BC. The conference theme was "The Green Challenge: Environmental Sustainability and the Challenges for Canada". After a morning panel with speakers including Green Party Leader Elizabeth May, Irwin Blanca, Dr. Richard Kool and Dr. Frank Tester, the teachers moved into a flurry of conversation over lunch and… Continue

With excitement I share with you all that I will be hosting a World Cafe for a group of 75-100 educators from across British Columbia, Canada this October. This will be the first event I've hosted with a large group and it will take place in a school gymnasium/classrooms. Please share your stories with me about hosting your first large event - I would love the inspiration!

Hi Jenn,
How lovely to get your note. Yes, I'll be in the C4C and other events related to the Dalai Lama's visit. My partner David, also co-founder of the World Cafe will also be there with a bit more flexibility since he is not in all the sessions....might you and he arrange to meet if the schedule is too tight for you and I? Are you going to any of the Dalai Lama events?
Warmest regards,
