Challenging Conversations Using the World Cafe Model

The World Cafe approach acknowledges conversation as a primary means for discovering common interests, sharing knowledge, imagining the future, and cooperating to survive and thrive. By engaging in multiple conversations, participants learn, explore possibilities, and co-create together. From this perspective, conversations are action—the very heartbeat and lifeblood of social systems like libraries, communities, and cultures.

The World Cafe approach helps leaders to utilize conversation as a core process for effecting positive systemic change in their libraries and their communities.
