Thank you for deciding to participate in the World Cafe 20th Anniversary Celebrations by hosting an Impact Café in your area during the month of October, 2015. We’re happy to support you in all the ways we can (see below), and look forward to hearing more about your plans.
Our intent is that you will use this 20th Anniversary as inspiration to bring your community together and have the meaningful conversations that are needed to ignite action and impact positive change in your region.
Keep it Simple to make it happen!
There are likely many issues in your community that are calling for attention. With support of our global network, extend an invitation to your community to engage in a simple and meaningful Café experience. Where are people ready to act, but lacking the collective confidence to take next steps? What are the conversations that are now ready to be engaged?
Whether it’s around issues of food security, inter-generational relationships, police and military accountability, education, refugees and border issues, race relations or whatever is “hot” where you live – host an Impact Café that aims to effect positive change in your region.
Determine the details of your Impact Café. Once you fill in the form below, we’ll upload it to a Impact Café Listings page where others can see your event and join in (if it is open to the public). We will promote your Impact Café in a number of other ways as well.
We encourage you to harvest your Impact Café with photographs, video, graphic recording, etc. We’ll send you a link to a private page where – after your Impact Café is over – you can upload your harvest and share the story of what happened. These stories and harvests will be featured on the World Café website, and used as part of a Global Harvest document.
Upon registering your Impact Café, you will receive an invitation to join other Impact Café hosts around the world in a special place on the World Café online community site to share strategies and learn from each other (there will also be examples of invitations, help in formulating your questions, press kits for media coverage, etc.). For new World Café hosts, we recommend the free Hosting Tool Kit, which includes the newly revised Café To Go guide for hosting World Café.
