Hosting Conversations about Questions that Matter
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…Continue

At the IAF Europe conference in September I visually facilitated an adapted World Café for the closing session. We wanted to give facilitators the experience of being 'inside' the process, and for them to see how it worked with a graphic facilitator - something not everyone had possibly experienced.

A step into the darker reaches of beyond maybe. Just joined as a result of a realisation that the research tool I have been looking for is already out there.
My PhD topic is seeking to be able to use mimetic theory ( a theory of desire and scapegoating) to develop a systems model of workplace bullying. I had been struggling to see how I could pull this together and was reading Bojer et als 'Mapping Dialogue' and came across the World Cafe.
To be honest my interest was…Continue
I am so encouraged by "meeting" so many World Cafe members online who share the goal of increasing communication to solve problems in the world, but also, just to enjoy talking with each other. This is what my Saturday Salons are all about-dinner/discussion groups that bring people together to talk about whatever is on their minds.
Although in-person communication is the most powerful, online communication has a valuable place, and I am happy to join you in thinking about and…Continue

Bucky's best idea may be his simplest. Starting with the gap at the Bering Strait, connect the globe with one single power grid. Then, implement solar energy power generation around the world connecting everyone to this grid. What you have is a carbon neutral power generation that can operate 24/7.

I want to prompt, nurture, and support changes that represent a collective improvement.
Bucky visualized the whole…Continue
