Host a World Café online: create virtual creative workshops with Glowbl 

Would you like to introduce creative workshops into your company? Find out how the World Café, adapted online with the Glowbl platform, can be the ideal solution for encouraging collective intelligence.

What is World Café?

World Café is an educational game based on collective intelligence, recreating the convivial atmosphere of a café for small-group discussions and debates around specific tables.

  • Table organisation: Each table deals with a specific issue, led by a moderator. Groups of 4 to 5 people discuss for 20 to 30 minutes, writing down their ideas on visible supports.
  • Group rotation: Participants change tables, facilitating connections and stimulating reflection. The World Café is an educational game based on collective intelligence, designed to recreate the convivial atmosphere of a café where exchanges and debates take place in small groups spread around different tables.

Why choose an online World Café with Glowbl?

The World Café offers tangible benefits, and the Glowbl platform makes it even more accessible and effective:

  • Everyone has the opportunity to express themselves, with communication often flowing more smoothly in small groups that encourage a sense of belonging and speaking time.
  • The volume and diversity of ideas generated, as well as the sharing of knowledge, are greater by multiplying the groups, having them follow one another and react one after the other.

It would be a shame not to exploit these advantages! With the right solution, like Glowbl, you can easily run a remote World Café. Glowbl’s virtual classrooms lend themselves perfectly to this creative workshop format.
