Meaningful conversations with each other are key to our learning/action network. We are sponsoring discovery teleconference “telecafes” each quarter (or so) in 2013 to learn more about what’s happening out there in the world of systems activists working across difference to strengthen our local communities for today and tomorrow. What are our stories? successes? deepest concerns? next steps? How are local community stewards successfully finding common ground across the political, cultural, and economic spectrum? How are we moving whole communities toward thriving, resilience, and compassion? What large-scale regional and trans-local initiatives and alliances are forming? What can we offer and what do we need from each other?
These cafes will be hosted by Ben Roberts and Heather Tischbein of the emerging Conversation Collaborative (formerly occupycafe.org). The cafes will inform the design of a live/virtual Fall Summit gathering in the San Francisco Bay in October 2013.
