World Café

The World Café aims to facilitate collaborative dialogue and knowledge and idea sharing in a creative way through conversation by creating a café ambiance of small groups sitting around tables. After a specified time, the participants move to a new table, apart from the table host, who then recaps the previous conversations to the newtable participants. As a result, the following discussions are cross-pollinated with the ideas from previous conversations among other participants. At the end of the process the main ideas are summarised in a plenary session and follow-up actions are discussed.
