A Genesis of Hope

With deep gratitude for our community of practice, I invite you to read some lines about one of the initiatives that has emerged out of the Impact Jamboree.Open Hearts Logo

Open Hearts supports volunteers who care for refugees – offering a variety of resources, and co-creating safe spaces for bearing witness for each other.

Open Hearts sees the need for hosted conversations, bringing together volunteers, NGO’s, governments and refugees; on all levels, ranging from local to regional and national and to international.

The Impact Jamboree has allowed me to deeply experience the power and potency of hospitable space, be it online or offline.

Hospitable space is so much more than some flowers and coloured pens. It is more than a beautifully designed invitation. It is more than healthy and tasty food. Of course, all of these ingredients help a lot… but there is more.

Conversations for the 21st Century


World Cafe Online Services partner WeDialogue is launching a series of free, interactive public conversations called Conversations for the 21st Century. These events will be telephone-based and use a World Cafe format. Each will focus on a different topic of significance for life in the 21st Century – economics, health, the environment, etc. – and feature a triad of "conversation starters" (thanks to the Heartland community for this term).

The three conversation starters are chosen for their diversity of perspective and together they will seed the conversation with insights based on their work in the subject area.

The first of the series, Community for the 21st Century, is happening on April 1st and will feature Peter Block, Nancy White, and Maria Scordialos and Sarah Whiteley as conversation starters.

Come, be part of the conversation!
