Hi Rob,

Welcome! I was intrigued to see your post in the Cafe Canada group about youth and the World Cafe ... I was wondering if you would be interested in bringing this topic more to the fore by posting it as a story in StoryNet, or using it to begin a new conversation topic or even a group, since the topic is beyond the geographic specifics of Canada.

Also, in reading your profile responses, I was curious ...
Tell me more about this "facilitator" role ... I haven't heard of it in relation to the World Cafe, where we are always careful to distinguish the work we do from facilitation, in part by calling it "hosting".

Glad you are with us here!

Amy
