Based on the theory of the power of collective knowledge, participants are brought together to share challenges and jointly gain new perspectives and develop solutions. 12-15 participants are allocated to the offered World Café session tables. The host (moderator, possibly with co-moderator) of each round table welcomes the guests and briefly introduces controversies, challenging or project related questions.
After 30 to 35 minutes, participants move to the next table based on the assigned order on their name badge to enter into a new discussion.
At the beginning of each new World Café round, the moderator gives a short conclusion of previously discussed aspects and questions emerged. This offers the opportunity to build up on the discussion continuously.
