This three-day collaborative event is designed as a method/skills training (Appreciative Inquiry) applied to the strategic issue of building confidence and capacity for collaboration in communities with diverse interests and goals.
The initiative for this training arose within the Slovenian Art of Hosting community, who perceive the growing need, and longing, for collaboration with others to address complex challenges – but also hesitancy, fear, and the longing for more capacity to boldly start and sustain collaborations that really nourish us all. The issue is especially relevant in many contexts in Central, Southern and Eastern Europe; though definitely not limited to this area, so we invite anyone who feels called to join in the exploration :-):
What will I get out of this training?
The working language of the training will be English. Within small groups, participants may choose another language that they all share.
The training will be highly dynamic, experiential and interactive. It is not an event for spectators: everyone is invited to contribute their own issues, challenges, existing and emerging projects, provocative questions, ideas and wisdom.
