The purpose of a “Knowledge Café” is to bring people together in an effort to learn from each other. The learnings are directly applied to make a positive difference in the world. Knowledge Cafés are mini-workshops where the participants engage in the theme of the evening. They are about networking, knowledge sharing and learning from each other – as opposed to presentations with questions-and-answer at the end. The presenter offers a short introduction, followed by 3 rounds of small group conversation. The night ends with a large group discussion.
The outcome for the participants is individual choice. It is often something that each individual views differently, that they can act on and do differently - immediately! These cafes are directly based on David Gurteen’s large and long standing global community. More information available at http://www.gurteen.com/gurteen/gurteen.nsf/id/kcafes
