Our Approach

World Café - a dialogical form of communication

New insights about efforts emerge when diverse people come together in conversation with each other. Thoughts and ideas are exchanged which shift the way the group understands an issue.

This is the essence of the World Café approach. Participants comfortably connect with each other and quickly enter into energized conversations which are full of new ideas.

The World Café method stimulates an environment of inspiration, motivation and an enthusiasm for action.

The Impact of the World Café Approach

Shifts Perspectives

New insights about efforts emerge when diverse people come together in conversation with each other. Thoughts and ideas are exchanged which shift the way the group understands an issue.

Inspires

Face-to-face encounters and personal stories spark our imagination. The energy to embrace new concepts is created by reflecting upon our aspirations in conversation with one another. 

Motivates

Hopes and ideas flow through discussions about issues that matter to us. These conversations provide a common foundation to embrace new approaches and want to be part of making it happen.

Mobilizes

Good conversations encourage us to listen more deeply and intermix individual ideas with one another. The combined wisdom of a group is made visible through these conversations which create a pathway for collective action.

Munich's Old Town Hall –
All Together with One Another

“Integration needs face-to-face encounters.”

World Café Europe was requested by the Office for Intercultural Affairs of Munich’s Department of Social Services and REGSAM (a citywide network for social work) to design a large scale dialogue to explore opportunities to effectively foster social participation throughout Munich and its neighborhoods. This World Café took place with 200 participants in the historic Altes Rathaus in the center of Munich. Participants represented a broad spectrum of diverse institutions, civil society, citizens and refugees.
