I loved reading your profile information and look forward to learning more about you and your university community.
I'm teaching World Cafe Hosting Fundamentals and social change methodologies / whole systems as part of the Adult Education and Masters programs at Fielding Graduate University and appreciate the rigor of a university environment.
There is a really active World Cafe community in Japan, and Kazuaki Katori is starting a series of ongoing online World Cafes that you may be interested in being part of. Kazu hosts the small but wonderful World Cafe Japan group here.
We also host separate monthly online World Cafes at times more conducive to Western time zones, which you are welcome to join as well. More information and a link to register is in the Calendar of Events here in this community space. There's one coming up next week on the 10th of October which my Fielding "World Cafe Hosting Fundamentals" class will be attending, and it will be a bit more of a teaching Cafe than usual.
