Debrief: Live Mapping with Jannik for Harvesting & Prototyping
Together with Caro & Maret, we will…
- go on a Journey
- reflect on our resources
- Create our own compass by discovering our purpose
- and together with Jannik, learn more about network visualisation as key tools
(e.g. for liberating structures)
Together with Jannik, we will create…
A landscape for the 21st century which is capable to make the complexity around us tangible and accessible, consisting of:
- Maps and tools for ourselves:
reflecting on our purpose & calibrating our inner compass
- Maps and tools for our network & communities:
Creating a network visualisation
Why Liberating Structures?
Liberating Structures are a powerful set of tools to engage everyone and unleash the wisdom of the crowd. Everyone can contribute experiences, ideas and solutions and therefore actively shapes their own future. As for the future, Liberating Structures can help to bring together diverse and innovative perspectives to create a common ground for a vibrant Global Changemaker Community.
Beacon 2: An 'Open Space' Design Event
Challenging Collaborations: how to work with people you don't agree with.
18 JULY, 2 - 6 PM CEST
Mille Bøjer | Key Note
nik beeson | co-host
Tanja Murphy-Ilibasic | co-host
The Global Change Days Festival was opened by Adam Kahane, a leading organizer, designer and facilitator of processes through which business, government, and civil society leaders can move forward on their most important and intractable issues, and author of ‘Collaborating With the Enemy: How to Work with People You Don’t Agree with or Like or Trust’.
In this Open Space event we wish to carry forward Adam’s workshop. In turbulent times – which we are certainly in – there can be a sense of peril and anxiety. When people get scared they react more instinctively, and defensively, and can become more deeply entrenched and polarized which makes moving forward together on crucial issues even more challenging.
This Open Space event is designed as a regulator to polarisation: to bring together diverse people with diverse points of view to learn to collaborate and work with people we don’t agree with.
The Open Space will be opened by Mille Bøjer – a director (with Adam Kahane) of REOS Partners, a social enterprise specializing in large multi-stakeholder collaborations. Mille has worked over the past 15 years on projects for systems change at community, national, regional and global levels, on topics including justice transformation, education, sustainable production and consumption, democracy, drugs, civil society, and regional economic transitions. She is the author of the chapter “Transformative Scenarios Process: How stories of the future help to transform conflict in the present” in the Berghof Handbook on Conflict Transformation and co-author of the book “Mapping Dialogue: Essential Tools for Social Change”, which outlines a variety of transformative dialogue tools and change processes.
