GLOBAL DIALOGUE FRAMEWORK GUIDELINES
We are very happy that you feel inspired to host a dialogue. Our intention is to provide you with the guidance for the preparation, hosting and harvesting of a Global Dialogue event. Our goal is that, like you, other people from different parts of the world will feel inspired to host a dialogue within their communities, organizations, companies, friends, and/or any kind of networks they are part of or can access.
SETTING UP THE SPACE
The Dialogue is basically run in two different settings:
THE CIRCLE: This can be a circle with chairs. If you feel it is appropriate for your group, you might want to invite them to sit down on the floor (having cushions is a good idea).
THE WORLD CAFÉ TABLES: Depending on the number of participants, you need to have a number of tables available with 4 to 6 participants at each.
If you have enough space, set up the circle and the café tables in different areas to avoid having to rearrange the space between sessions. Below you can see pictures showing an example of a space set up for a dialogue:
THE DIALOGUE FRAMEWORK
To assist you in facilitating The GlobalDialogues we have co-created a Global Dialogue Framework. This Framework includes Dialogue Principles to guide participants in their relational practices, and a Dialogue Process for facilitating the dialogues in a coherent and systemic way.
THE DIALOGUE PRINCIPLES
Participants are invited to share these principles as the basis of Global Dialogue practice. You may want to create a poster and put it on the wall to make it visible for them:
OPENNESS– to each other, to the process of co-learning and co-creation, and to the purpose of these dialogues.
RESPECT – for different views and understandings, for each participant’s unique learning journey, and for a peaceful and empowering group dynamic.
WILLINGNESS– to discover, to learn, to share, and to contribute to the Global Dialogue Process.
COMMITMENT– to apply the first three principles and to participate with a positive and open-minded attitude.
THE DIALOGUE PROCESS
The Dialogue Process is founded on five key steps that can be facilitated in any context for all different kinds of cultures and all kinds of groups. This process was designed to be run in 4 hours.
You are free to create your own exercises and facilitation techniques for each step. To support you in your facilitation we have included a range of techniques and social technologies that we found very useful and empowering (please refer to the complete set of the Global Dialogue guidelines).
These key steps are:
CONNECT >>>>> ENVISION >>>>>> ENGAGE >>>>> REFLECT >>>>> SHARE
The Global Dialogue 5 Step Process
Step 1 -CONNECT – about 50 minutes
Step 2 -ENVISION – about 30 minutes
Step 2 includes a visioning exercise for envisioning an equitable and flourishingfuture and society, and a group sharing to integrate the visioning experience.
Now from this future perspective of where you are now, as you look back at 2012, what would you say did we as a humanity learn, change, and act on in 2012 and the following years, that enabled us to co-create this future and society together? Now take the wisdom and knowledge from this future with you back to present reality in 2012 to support us in 2012 with what we need to realise and understand in order to co-create the future that we want. As you are ready to leave this future and move back to present time in 2012, walk back on the path through which you came and come back to your life in 2012.
Step 3 -ENGAGE – about 60 minutes
Through this step participants will explore and answer three questions in small groups of 4 to 6 people. For each question people will form a different group to ensure maximum exchange between people and to enrich the co-learning experience. Ask each group to select a host, who upon rotation of tables and participants remains at the table to explain to the new group members what was discussed previously. Then ensure that after completion of the exercise, new hosts are chosen. Hosts also ensure that the dialogue principles are applied and that each member of the group is given the space to share and express.
Step 4 -REFLECT– about 15 minutes
Welcome everybody back into the bigger circle. Explain that this next step is about reflecting and integrating the experience of the day. Ask the participants to close their eyes, sit comfortable, release any tension, breathe deeply and relax into their body. You can play some peaceful relaxing music and soften your voice. Ask people to reflect on the following questions:
Question: What did I learn and receive today? And what actions can I take now,to support the co-creation of the future and society that we want?
Step 5 -SHARE – about 60 minutes
This step is about sharing the harvesting of the day: bringing to the surface the main concerns and ideas of the group, making the knowledge visible so that the whole group witnesses the co-creation and co-learning that took place. There are four parts to this step: A. The 10 min harvesting team presentation, B. 20 min of Group sharing, C. 15 min formation of Action Groups by participants sharing their actions from Step 4 Reflect, and D. 15 minutes of completion remarks.
The closing is very important to make sure people ground their learning, insights and connections with other people. At this point, invite people to stay in the circle and share “What is their ‘take away’ from this dialogue process?” or “In three words the gift they received from this day”. The talking piece can be used in the same way it was used during the Welcome. Again, ask people to be concise in their speaking, in order to allow time for everybody to speak.
We hope that you enjoyed hosting this process and that you learned a lot with you group. After the process, you are invited to share the outcomes of your dialogue with the Rio+20 project group. We are developing a platform for you to post the harvest of your conversation.
The harvesting team is composed of individuals, able to listen in, connect the dots, see patterns, synthesise and tell stories and visually represent the collective ideas, knowledge and feelings.
The synthesis can take various forms: a written report (avoiding just plain text), a poster, a power point presentation, a video, etc. Organising, facilitating and harvesting team need to agree together on the most suitable format for the type of participants involved (e.g. a poem or story for children and report for businessman). The Harvesting should basically reflect the collective answer for the following four questions:
 This process has been inspired by a creative co-learning process called, TAP-The Actualisation Process®, which was developed by Anneloes Smitsman (founding Director ELIA-Ecological Living In Action) http://anneloes.ecolivinginaction.com/courses/tap-the-actualisation-process/.
