Join us in creating this 'World Cafe'” style of knowledge sharing conversation, with members of Transition Whatcom and Living Democracy.

The book World Café by Juanita Brown & David Isaacs inspires our Democracy Cafe' through 'knowledge sharing”.  We each have a special voice to be shared & heard.

Here’s how Democracy Café works: Each  mini-conversation rotates between tables  with 4-5 people.    At 30” or so, we play musical tables and everyone moves to a new table to converse with an entirely new group. One person stays at the original table as a “host” of the ideas the group has come up with.  The others leave as “ambassadors” of the ideas from their table & go on to a different table. A new round of discussions begin with the table host presenting the ideas generated by the first group & the ambassadors joining in with the ideas brought with them from their first table discussions.  After 30” another table change takes place, and then another. The ideas created are “cross pollinated” again & again; usually creating a result that is far beyond anything a single person or round table discussion would come up with.

At the end, the table notes are placed on the wall so everyone can look them over. A whole group discussion takes place over what came up. Personal & family improvements might be New Years resolutions.  Community improvement ideas can be presented to the city & county.  National ideas can be communicated to our representatives.
