World Café – creatively stimulating transformation

World Café – a dialogue approach that should encourage people to intensive discussions about questions that are important to them and thus make the collective knowledge of large groups accessible.

Small groups of people are sit together at tables and have conversations in an informal welcome atmosphere. In round tables that are thematically built on each other, the participants move between the tables several times. This gives them the opportunity to link their ideas and points of view on an issue with those of the other participants and thus allows an intense exchange of knowledge and experience. As a result, a strong network of ideas and knowledge arises.

As a very fast and effective method a World Café can help answering „hot“ questions, pushing complex processes and integrating interdisciplinary perspectives.

The principles of the World Café:

  • All perspectives count
  • Sharing is caring
  • The social net works
