Participatory Project: World Cafe: Air, Land, and Water

Description
Adopting the World Cafe methodology (an effective format for large group dialogue), the two-part workshop will bring together a diverse group of people including grassroots communities, environmental activists, and other social interest groups, who are engaged with environmental and sustainability issues. In this workshop, participants will hold presentations and discussions on topics of urgency relating to air and water. Participants are asked not only to consider the current state of matters, but more importantly, to project solutions and desires for the future. The process begins with small group presentations and conversations with each group focusing on one elected topic, after which participants rotate and move to another topic.

The final aim of the workshop will be for the participants to come up with proposals/manifestos for the future and present them to invited representatives from relevant state agencies and ministries.

Through this project, Marjetica Potrč lays a special focus on participation and agency. Individual empowerment, problem-solving-tools, and long-term strategies are key in her approach.
