Please indicate your World Café experience (ONLY IF YOU HAVE ACTUAL WORLD CAFE EXPERIENCE) in one or more of the following roles:
I'm New to the World Cafe
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?
This is a hard one to answer for me since I am joining to learn. I am a recently graduated MSW, and I have lots of knowledge on building better workforces, organizations and communities. I am well-versed in the Consensus Organizing model. I am a voracious learner and have more knowledge than experience. NOW I'm looking to DO all that I have learned.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
I'm ready to host a Cafe in my community. My community NEEDS to come together, I think the cafe process is just the tool that can make that happen. I would like advice and guidance as I launch out for my first Cafe, so I can build enough confidence to do it again on my own (and teach others how to host cafes).
I have connected with a person who can help me in my process, but he is out of town for the month of August, and has limited email access during that time. I, specifically, would like to apply for funding to cover whatever costs are associated with hosting a cafe. I need help figuring out what costs might be associated. The book does not go into detail about that.
I'm READY to host my first Conversation Cafe around the topic of transportation in my community. I've read the World Cafe book and now I need a little advice and guidance to support me in my planning process.
