The World Café format was chosen for these upcoming events. It consists in a whole group interaction method focused on conversations. Such format stimulates a creative process for leading collaborative dialogue, sharing knowledge and creating possibilities for action in groups of all sizes.

The events target the civil society in the broader sense: 1) the "third sector" of society, distinct from government and business, and including the family and the private sphere; 2) the aggregate of non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest interests and will of citizens and 3) individuals and organizations in a society which are independent of the government. The World Cafés shall gather needs and demands from civil society in the fields addressed by pilot actions.

The organisation of the events in ongoing, more details will be available in short time also on this website.
