Conversation Cafe is a worldwide network of people working to create a culture of dialogue through hosting Conversation Cafés.(see www.conversationcafe.org
) Our sister organization Peacemaker Institute hosts weekly Conversation Cafes in Second Life and in this online forum we would like to continue the dialogue as well. We will post regular questions and topics. Please join the conversation!
Below is a question from the "ten top" questions for International Conversation Week 2008 which happened in March:
10. What can we do to reduce or eliminate violence in the world?
(Ending violence everywhere)
What incites people to violence and how can those conditions change? When have you experienced a potentially violent situation transform into a more peaceful resolution and what can we learn from that? Where is violence happening in your community and what would you like to see in its stead? What will it take to not just end violence and war, but wage peace?
