A World Council event hosted by the Grandmother Collective

Join us for this exciting workshop! Register below and connect with others in the Grandmother Collective community while experiencing firsthand the World Council method for hosting effective conversations that bridge generational, ideological, religious and socio-economic divides. This event lasts two hours and is open to all.

At World Council gatherings, participants take on the persona of a historical humanitarian hero to discuss the problems we face today. Then, together as a "World Council" of historical leaders, they work together to devise solutions to shared problems. The event is an opportunity to reflect, listen, and engage with others; to explore other peoples' perspectives by putting ourselves in their shoes; and to brainstorm solutions to bring about the world we hope to live in. 

After the event you will have the opportunity to sign up to be trained as a World Council facilitator.

For over 25 years, World Council gatherings have been attended by people of all ages, leanings and backgrounds. Over time, World Council has documented that respectful dialogue on issues that matter to us all can unite us in our shared universal values and encourage us to act together to achieve our common hopes for our world.
