DIALOGUE - Facilitating Creative Communication
Start date: Oct 1, 2009,
The DIA-FCC project intents to inspire and to promote the capability of dialogical communication and behaviour - based on the theory developed by David Bohm and others - to initiate change processes. Dialogue aims in a shared exploration at generation of greater shared understanding. The goal of dialogue is to find common ground in appreciating people's diversity The overall main purpose of the project is to spread more of the dialogue methodology and dialogical behaviour as skills to facilitate the creation of a new culture of communication which leads to common creative thinking, new insights and creative solutions.Dialogue needs the development of core features and competencies which have to be trained in groups. The project will train participants of different cultural background from 8 partner countries who want to broaden their skale of activities to help people and teams with pathways to improve their knowledge and competences to be proactive in and for necessary change processes. It opens up for participants a multi-faceted field of common and mutual learning in a multicultural group to develop facilitator skills and experience. Gender sensitive DUO work of dialogue process facilitating will mark the trainings as well as the learning offers for participants. The trained participants will transfer their gained experiences and skills to target groups in their countries. This learning community will network during the time of project implementation in order to establish an European pool of dialogue process facilitators. The results of the project work are an interactive website, educational material to facilitate dialogue sessions, a sample of handboock for trainees, a Final Conference in Sofia and a further educational course for European participants at the University of Leipzig. The certified alumni will form an European Network of Dialogue Process Facilitators (EuNet DPF).
