What is a World Café Dialogue?
The World Café is a simple type of workshop and conversational process for hosting large group dialogues which aims to provide an open, safe and creative conversation around a topic of mutual interest to surface collective knowledge, share ideas and insights, and gain a deeper understanding of the subjects and the issues explored.
Community Panel 2:30pm to 3:30pm
World Café Dialogue 3:30pm to 5:00pm
These events are free and open to the public.
