Good to hear from you and hello to your Sweden Transition Group. I use WC all the time in my professional work hosting conversations and dialogue processes. It is fantastically flexible, accessible and creative...what i really need to learn more about is the design of city wide conversations. Do you have any experience of these in your Transition Group?

Hi Stephen, a warm welcome to you into this World Cafe online community of learning and practice from me as a host of this space :)
Your knowledge/skills sounds great to me! I am a big fan of Transition Initiative and have some good friends in those movements. Do you know Mr. Forsmark then? i guess so...

I hope you feel inspired to take a look around in this rich pool of conversations, groups and people and find the juicy spots for you to harvest and contribute... i am very sure there are good people that can support you with setting up Cafés with local government!

If you want you can take a moment to write a little introduction about yourself here.

Please let me know if i can help you navigating/using this space, best wishes,
