We design, organise and coordinate vocational education trainings by connecting experiences and expertise. We open up spaces for peer-learning exchange among practitioners. We foster intercultural exchange. We build up innovative professional networks in Europe. And we want to learn!
With the support of participatory methods (Open Space Technology, World Café, Appreciative Inquiry, Graphic Facilitation and Design Thinking), we design and support organisations in hosting conversations about topics and issues that lay at their hearts. We encourage self-organisation in the group, foster collective responsibilty and creativity - from the design to the delivery phase.Strategy Meeting CfE (2013)
Giulia (MA intercultural conflict management) works as facilitator and is passionate about facilitating groups in becoming more aware of their own resources, fostering collective intelligence in the room and supporting co-creation processes. Her practice is inspired by Art of Hosting, Design Thinking and Process-Oriented Psychology.
In the last 2 years, her work consisted especially in supporting organizations in establishing cross-disciplines and cross-nationals networks of practitioners based on the principles of self-organisation, resources exchange and peer-learning. She has been working all over Europe for British Council (Rome), Citizens for Europe e.V. (Berlin, Copenhagen), Bertelsmann Stiftung (Barcelona), Charles Leopold Mayer Foundation (Paris). Currently she is exploring how to best connect this expertise to inclusive urban governance processes.
In the team, Giulia is the one who keeps asking questions and wants to get to the essence of the issue. Only at that point she's happy.
Amsterdam - here we come! Our next Local Squares meeting will take place from September 25-27. We'll be introduced to the Oasis Game Method and dedicate time for testing our first toolkit prototype.Lena, September 3rd, 2013
During the last weekend (May 31st-June 2nd), Giulia had plenty of fun working with 40 young architects coming from all over Europe to Berlin for the Event 0.1. The meeting had the goal to start up an international professional collaborative platform, by working out first its purpose and structure. Quick and dirty prototyping sessions (Design Thinking) have never been so creative, deep and immediate as this time… Maybe also thanks to the inspiring location, facing the well-known graffiti of Blu in the heart of Kreuzberg?Giulia, 2nd of June 2013
