Listen for Meaning

Try this exercise sometime: When you are with a friend, stare into his or her eyes for a full minute (while he/she is staring back at you). This isn’t about flirting, or hypnosis.

No, it’s just about appreciating that you are looking at something completely unique (and so is your partner).

World Café at the World Summit on Information Society

In 2011, I introduced The World Café into ITU, the UN ICT agency, where I was then employed. The World Café was developed by Juanita Brown and David Isaacs and now comprises a global community of practitioners. It is a wonderful collaborative meeting methodology, and this highly participative tool became immediately very popular in ITU, an organization that supports dialogue and consensus.

I am proud and honoured to conduct my 12th high-level international ITU/UN world café type event…

Money is messing up my local economy: 7 things to learn

A recent report on local currency and local economy from Sweden, complied by Transition member Steve Hinton, sheds light on some of the pitfalls and opportunities for local community action.

Most money today in Sweden is digital, only a few percent is notes and coins.…

Zoomlion World Cafè, Changsha (China), July 12th, 2013

I am aware that sometimes trying to summarize emotions, thoughts, feelings and even the discussions in words is a quite challenging and not productive endeavor. So, summarizing in a few words the Zoomlion World Cafè event of July 12th is definitely a challenge for me. Maybe it will be easier for those who participated in the event to catch in the following words something that they recognize. For those who were not there, I hope that, without a full understanding, their curiosity…

        A sustainable world can never be fully realized until it is widely

World Café across cultures and languages

Most of the World Cafés I have hosted are in multicultural and multilingual settings.  This has never been a barrier to meaningful communication.  The café methodology connects us at such a deep, fundamentally human level, that when the system comes together, open dialogue is established within…

IAF Europe Association newsletter article about our 'Big Conversation' World Café

At the IAF Europe conference in September I visually facilitated an adapted World Café for the closing session.
