This is a repeat of the successful session we held in May.
The first time we held it at 10.00am and there have been requests to hold another at an evening time - so this is it!
In this session we are going to look at collaborative problem solving as a way of coming to solutions to areas of common interest.
In GlobalNet21 we have a large number of people with often very different views who are concerned to tackle some of the major issues that we face in this century.
The traditional models of debate and discussion although important are not always appropriate for every occasion and we need to look at different models of engagement when people with widely differing views meet together.
So this meetup will introduce a collaborative dialogue game developed by one member of Globalnet21 designed to create consensus and to involve everyone on an equal basis.
The METTA process is a novel way to collectively come up with solutions in any area of common interest. It does so in a fair and constructive manner by allowing everyone an equal say through orienting discussion towards consensus solutions, whilst providing a structure through which to resolve differences.
The basic METTA process is designed for three participants, although many processes can be run simultaneously in a workshop environment and in scaling it up it is a tool intended to allow for truly democratic decision-making.
This session will be facilitated by Dan Scrimgeour who has been developing processes whereby dialogue can take place in a collaborative environment.
If you are interested in new approaches to consensus decision-making and democratic social organisation, then please feel free to come along and experiment with this approach.
You Will Need To Pay Your Annual Subscription to Attend
Although membership of our site is free we do expect all those who attend our events to pay an annual subscription that covers attendance not just one meeting but also to the vast majority of our meetups and webinars for any one year. It also allows you to bring one guest free to every meeting or webinar.
If you are unable to pay online this way can you please let us know and we will make other arrangements. Also we never refuse membership to anyone who is unable to pay, so do please let us know if there are difficulties this way and you will still be able to join in.
