Nobel Peace Prize Forum World Café
Forum participants will be invited to participate in a World Café session on Saturday, March 5, at 2:30 p.m. in the Luther College cafeteria.
The World Café is a flexible, easy-to-use process for fostering collaborative dialogue, sharing collective knowledge, and discovering new opportunities for action.
If you have ever had a serious conversation while sitting with friends in a café, you have experienced the essence of World Café. This process creates and weaves together dynamic conversations among four or five people, focusing on questions that matter to you and to the world.
Join in a practical exploration of what the world is calling us to do now as we strive for peace, and how we will embody the courage to act in our lives.
