From academic know-how to business savvy

Fostering change in communities through dialogue
Inspired by the power of collective intelligence as embodied by the practice of the World Café, Jeffrey co-founded the non-profit organization World Café Europe e.V. in 2007. Its vision …”is a Europe where citizens actively engage to find concrete solutions for the key issues of their time.”
World Café Europe’s work with its partners aims to promote the use of large group participatory dialogue to provide individuals and communities a voice on the issues of importance to them. By offering a platform for dialogue, World Café Europe aims to establish opportunities for co-creating solutions for issues that matter.
Ensemble Enabler donates a percentage of its yearly profits to World Café Europe e.V. to support the creative development of such cutting-edge dialogue initiatives.
