2nd European Mediation Conference organized by the International Mediation Alliance with the support of the culture.communication. The goal of the conference was to enhance the development of cross-border mediation and to expand its consisten use accross Europe to solve conflicts faster, more effective and more cost-efficient than at conventional judicial proceedings. Amazing!
I was invited to host a networking session as that was what the participants were craving for and didn´t get in the first conference a year ago in Italy, so I thought of a way o making it happen without it "just being a business card party", but more a space to connect and interact around things that matterd for them at that moment. This is what I came up with after remembering a greographical walk talk with colleagues at the Art of Hosting Berlin in 2009. To me it was a great experience to work with people that don´t usually use art-of-hosting-like methodologies and processes, and I think the participants enjoyed it too!
