Preparing Cycle 2–Dialogue for Education

  • 16 Trittligasse Zürich, ZH, 8001 Switzerland (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

From October 2018 - May 2019 15 participants went through a deep learning process to grow themselves as facilitators for dialogue and to step into a circle and community for the practice of dialogue. This was simply a fantastic journey, and we still feel the ripples from the personal and collective impact and learnings that took place.

We are passionate, curious, excited and called to continue this work, and offer another learning journey starting in October 2019. This time in the field of Education.

Our learning institutions are the building blocks of our community. They carry all of the tradition and wisdom of generations past; they are our first and most influential teachers about cooperation, rigor, work ethic, creativity and appreciation.
AND they bear the weight of those things that trouble us in our lives. We see the frantic search for purpose, we feel the unrealistic expectations of success, we sense the extent that exclusion mirrors our own acceptance of ourselves… and the symptoms manifest as bullying, bursts of anger, loneliness, addiction, disengagement, self-criticism, self-absorption, lack of enthusiasm or even enjoyment.

For the next training cycle we call in YOU you who are an educator yourself, or you who are a facilitator interested in educational systems change. And you who resonates with the following questions:

Do you feel it is time to learn how to ask the uncomfortable and unspoken questions? Is it your passion to guide people into deeper layers of understanding symptoms which are reflected by different social challenges?
Are you interested to be part of a Dialogue Facilitators community, who explores the dialogue methodology on a deeper level, and who discovers themselves in the process?

During this training process we will work with around 15 individuals on their personal facilitation growth journeys and as a group we will support a few specific schools or institutions with a systems change towards a culture of dialogue. How?

Part of the journey is to get practical and to work in teams on specific prototypes. These prototypes will happen in collaboration with 2-3 schools/institutions. It might be that the specific school or institution is also the workplace of some of our training participants. As a community we will collaborate with the school/institution and role model, embody our practises together with students and teachers. Sidsel (one of the founders of this training) have already worked successfully with this model in Denmark at a number of schools and institutions, and we will build on the knowing and learning from these experiences.

- The training will be held in German and a bit of English.
- The training will have an estimated price of 2000-3000 CHF
- Stay tuned, there will be more information coming soon in our flyer.

This training is led in the spirit of the CoHe principles and in close collaboration with its organisation and team.

IF THIS SPARKS A LIGHT FOR YOU? SHOW UP FOR THIS EVENING AND YOU WILL HEAR MORE.

Dialogue Learning Day

Dialogue Learning Day

We invite you to come together for a learning day to learn about deep Dialogue.

We need Dialogue when KNOWING how to change the world is not enough. We understand Dialogue as one of our most treasured practice spaces for understanding symptoms and social complex problems and conflicts. Together with collaboratio helvetica we are exploring how deeper dialogues can make a real systemic contribution to the sustainable challenges that faces the times we live in.

We open this day as a space for practise and for diving into the dialogue method. We invite a diverse group of people to join us. If you are sceptical about our thesis you are even more so welcome. The dialogue we wish to host is made up by diverse people with different opinions and life stories.

HOW WILL THIS DAY BE?
The day will focus on being part of dialogue and experiencing dialogue rather than learning “about” dialogue.
The day will explore deeper the 4 principles for dialogue.
The day is not a classical workshop, but a process where we let things emerge within a framework and there will be space for listening to and working with what is present in the room.

WHAT DO WE MEAN WITH DIALOGUE?
What we call Dialogue is more than a setting where people come together and talk with each other.
Dialogue can be understood as a context in which tools, distinctions and processwork flow together, to enable people to learn from each other to understand root causes of conflict and to find the togetherness in each other instead of differences.
Dialogue is a context, with a delicate quality, that allows new ways of unfolding the question “what is really going on here”? And “why is this happening”? The elements that makes up this quality are present and aware people who are sharing real and raw stories, emotions and experiences instead of processed conclusions, theories and concepts. As well it is the presence of a safe space that everyone helps building and supported by a few guidelines and principles.

HOW DO WE USE DIALOGUE IN collaboratio helvetica?
Dialogue is part of the vision at collaboratio helvetica. Over the last year, we have been hosting open spaces (called Dialogue Evenings) between versatile groups of people in CH on different relevant societal issues or topics around the Sustainable Development Goals(SDG´s).

Sliding and guiding price: 50-100 CHF

We look forward seeing you and learning with you.

Sidsel and Christine

Community Forum: The Space for Ideas & Co-Creation

What is the Community Forum?

Would you like to suggest a new idea and develop it further with the community, or have maybe pondered about igniting a Social Lab? Or are you wondering what is happening within the community and want to reconnect with other explorers, as well as contribute to what is emerging? Then this is the space for it.

Whether you want to bring in an existing collaboratio helvetica project (e.g. dialogue evening, societal transformation lab, ...) or your new idea, this is the space to co-create, get feedback and potentially find collaborators to get ahead.

Community Fora are also a key way for the people working intensively for and with cohe to co-create and receive feedback from the extended community that this work serves. As an example, in this Community Forum we want to present you our project for a digital community platform. What kind of structures and processes are needed in order to support collaboration and innovation in our community? We are looking forward to get your feedback, needs and wishes and integrate them into the further development of the platform.

Who is invited?

This event is for our explorers only. If you are an explorer, please fill in this form.

If you are thinking about becoming part of our community and would like to test the water first, send us a message to: community@collaboratio.ch

Dialogue Evening Prototype - Shaping the future of women

To celebrate the International Women’s Day, this is an invitation predominantly addressed to women to gather together for a dialogue regarding the future we want to build and cultivate.
Various forces and phenomena are quickly transforming and redefining our world. Increasing movement of people around the globe, social media, climate change, refugees, instable economies and nationalism as the counter-force of globalization are some of the collective challenges we face on a global scale.

Despite of the emancipation and empowerment of women in the Western countries, the world is still largely being shaped by those same forces that have catalysed the problems we face today. This invitation is for all wild women and the wild men who wish to participate in an open dialogue on changing the world through vision and action. Your legacy, no matter how small or big, matters to the world. What is our vision for the world? What legacy do we want to leave for the next generations? What kind of possibilities and opportunities do we want to come into being through us?

To quote Clarissa Pinkola Estés, it is is time for us to become °Women Who Dance with Wolves”:

“Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing. Her name is Wild Woman, but she is an endangered species”

Costs: pay what feels right. You are also welcome to bring a snack for our buffet.

This is a dialogue evening prototype offered by participants of our ongoing Dialogue Training.

Dialogue Evening: Gender equity - exploring unconcious bias

  • Impact Hub Zürich - Viadukt Bogen D (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Exploring unconcious bias

CH Workshop DRUCK-96.jpg

"I ask myself....How can we, without judgement, come to understand the unconscious gender bias that is ingrained in most of us?"

Please note that there will only be 15 spots in this dialogue, so dont wait to reserve your spot! Also note that the Dialogue will be bilingual (german and english)

This is the question we want to explore in this dialogue, that goes deep into the topic of Gender Equity, and to explore it amongst a diverse group of individuals. We wish to have a conversation where we ask the more difficult question, and open up to talk about the true assumptions, ambiguities, experiences and questions we have regarding our very own patterns, roles, identities, limitations, expectations related to gender.

As a participant you can expect a space for exchange, for learning and for connection. A space where our main focus is to experience and learn from being in the question and in the dialogue itself, rather than on finding answers and produce tangible solutions as fast as possible.

What is a Dialogue Evening?
Dialogue Evenings are 3 hour exchange and conversation, designed to create an authentic, safe and inclusive space in which we enable conversations between a diverse group of people (who would not usually meet) to explore deep connections and new ways of viewing the problems we as individuals or as a collective are facing.
Dialogue Evenings shift the conversations we usually have around difficult, complex and sometimes ambiguous topics, by approaching topics not from a place of debate & problem solving but from a place that explores opinions, experiences, views and questions on a deeper level, to understand their systemic nature.

What questions drive this invitation?
Is this a straight forward problem? Or is there another place we need to start this conversation from?
Is it clear who is the prosecutor and who is the perpetrator in this problem?
What is behind it, when even a declared feminist, realises to have a strong unconscious bias favouring men over women in the work life? Do we all have moments where we unintentionally discriminate a person because of her gender? And what can we learn from these moments? We have all been raised in this culture. How can we, without judgements, come to understand he unconscious gender bias that is ingrained in most of us?

Dont hesitate to reach out to sidsel for any questions :
johanna@diversify.ch

We have already hosted a previous dialogue evening on the 8th of Nov 2018, and many interesting questions came out. Those we would like to build on for the next Dialogue:

  • How much of me is my personal history?

  • Why am I so interested in this topic?

  • How would mindfulness and self-awareness influence unconscious bias & gender inequality?

  • How does having a bias actually affect our lives?

  • How does biology fit into gender equality?

  • What unconscious bias do we have about unconscious bias itself?

  • How can we „switch on“ the unconscious bias radar on our daily thinking?

  • How can we actively detect our unconscious bias in our daily life and in the way we express ourselves?

  • How can we talk about solving the unconscious bias without being attached to talking about the negative impact?

  • Why does every discussion go back to the „mistakes“ women do or the fact that men (and other groups) are also discriminated?

  • Why do we often assume that women need to adapt instead of men/society?

  • Do we talk enough about the unconscious bias, also outside of a protected area?

  • What are the reasons for unconscious bias and should we care about them?

  • What role has biology and history to play in the generation of unconscious biases?

  • Are we talking about equality or equity?

  • How can I raise awareness in my surroundings about biases? Where do I have blind spots? How do I discover them? How can I actively change them?

  • What is a concrete action in my life to be less blind?

  • How can we (m/w) better share responsibilities?

  • What decision-making process can help us be more unbiased?

  • Why, even though I know the way I think is „wrong“, I can’t change the way I feel about something?

  • How can I use dialogue more in everyday life?

Dialogue Learning Day

A day to learn and exchange about being in and holding space for Dialogue.

Dialogue_Evening.jpg

In collaboratio helvetica we are using Dialogue as one of our key methodologies, because we want to bring the format of dialogue to the peripheries to create deeper human connection as starting points to discuss the main challenges of our time.


We have found out that we love the nature of dialogue and the potential and new possibilities that the format of a dialogue can unleash.
Are you too, curious about holding the space for human connection and deep listening in a group? For Dialogue Evenings or dialogues in general? You think you can learn something from us, or we can learn something from you?
If the answer to this question is three times yes, we would like to invite you to join us for a day of learning and exchange about dialogue methods and experiences.

HOW WILL THIS DAY BE?
The day will focus on being part of dialogue and experiencing dialogue rather than learning “about” dialogue.
The day will be co-created, as well as facilitated.
The content is dynamically shaped by all of our and your different ways, tools and experiences with dialogue. There will also be space for listening to and working with some of the questions that might be present in the room.

HOW DO WE USE DIALOGUE IN collaboratio helvetica?
Dialogue is part of the vision at collaboratio helvetica. Over the last year, we have been hosting open spaces (called Dialogue Evenings) between versatile groups of people in CH on different relevant societal issues or topics around the Sustainable Development Goals(SDG´s).

A Dialogue Evening is a 3 hour event, hosted by a local co-working space and facilitated by collaborate helvetica. Each Dialogue has a topic that can be more or less scoped (f.eks. “Gender Equality” as a topic by itself or “parenting” as a subtopic to Gender Equality). During the Dialogue Evening the participants goes through a facilitated process that helps them to connect, learn and reflect about the topic on a personal level, but also to open up new perspectives and solutions to the topic by using the collective intelligence and sensing of the group.

Dialogue evening: learning to stay with the trouble

Dialogue evening: learning to stay with the trouble

This Dialogue space is about exploring and diving deeply into the question from Donna Harraway. “What happens when human exceptionalism and bounded individualism, those old saws of Western philosophy and political economics, become unthinkable in the best sciences, whether natural or social? Seriously unthinkable: not available to think with".

We aim at become better at holding space for each other while engaging with the deeply disturbing facts of our times and support each other to find a way to keep thinking and feeling our way into the future.

Already 2 prototypes of this dialogue space has happened before. In the last one we did in November, we decided to change the structure of the evening, and add some new elements, like contact improvisation and mindful connection exercises. It turned out that these had a powerful impact, and helped us connect with each other, and the deeper purpose of dialogue, without explaining theories and frameworks. The simple exercise of leaning against someone else back to back, accepting their weight and support, while trusting them to support us, opened up new ways to continue this journey, away from old techniques of problem solving, and towards a more interconnected approach to view ourselves.

It also helped us realise that what we are trying to achieve is a dialogue practice, where we can come together regularly and explore and re-explore different ways to let ourselves make space for other people’s experiences in our mental universe. We think that this will let us alter how we make decisions in our daily life, and how we find new ways towards a more sustainable living.

We would like to invite you to join us further on this journey. We will gather again on January 4th, and continue to think with each other, move and breath with each other, and let us change, without actively pursuing a single goal. The question we would like to propose this time is about practices of caring through memory: Recall one or more instances when in a difficult situation, you remembered something of the shared past and telling this sudden emerging of a memory changed the situation. What was the situation? What memory appeared? Did the other person remember? How did it change the situation?

There will be some snacks and drinks at the event. You are welcome to contribute with anything you like.

collaboratio Adventsfenster Aktion - 10. Dezember

Seit Oktober 2018 ist das Projekt collaboratio helvetica in der alten Sigristwohnung der ref. Gemeinde Matthäus ansässig. Wir dürfen diese Wohnung bis Ende 2019 als Zwischennutzung für unser Büro und auch als Wohnung für zwei Mitarbeiterinnen verwenden.

collaboratio helvetica ist zugleich Plattform, Gemeinschaft, Organisation und Bewegung. Unsere Vision ist eine nachhaltigere und bewusstere Schweiz, in welcher alle Menschen ihr volles Potential ausleben können. Das heisst, dass wir als Gesellschaft gemeinsam über unsere Verschiedenheiten hinweg an einem Strang ziehen, uns gegenseitig unterstützen und aufeinander sowie auf die Umwelt Acht geben. Durch positiven Dialog, neue Formen der Zusammenarbeit und Experimenten formen wir die Schweiz, in welcher wir gemeinsam leben wollen.

Deshalb ist es uns ein grosses Anliegen, unsere Nachbarschaft besser kennen zu lernen und auch ganz im Lokalen aktiv zu werden.

Wir werden dieses Jahr an der Adventsfenster Aktion im Quartier teilnehmen und am Montag 10. Dezember um 17.00 Uhr unser Fenster „eröffnen“. Diese Gelegenheit möchten wir nutzen, um einen Austausch mit unserer neuen Nachbarschaft zu starten. Es werden auch Menschen aus unserem Netzwerk dabei sein. (Ps: die Sigristwohnung ist im Tiefparterre der Reichenbachstr. 112, ihr könnt einfach die Rampe oder die Treppe vom Gebäude der ref. Gemeinde Matthäus runtergehen).

Wir freuen uns bereits auf einen schönen Abend mit Punsch und Leckereien.

Würdest du gerne vorbeischauen? Melde dich doch kurz bei uns.

DEMO DAY: Beyond Waste | Circular Resources Lab

[In English below]

Et si les laboratoires d’innovation sociale étaient l’approche clé pour entamer une transition vers l’économie circulaire ? Que se produit-il lorsque 24 acteurs de changement issus de domaines différents travaillent ensemble dans un format innovant ? Comment cultive-t-on la collaboration intersectorielle, alignant les intérêts des entreprises, des autorités publiques, de la recherche et de la société civile, compte tenu de la grande diversité de modes de travail et de pensée ?

Vous êtes chaleureusement invités au Demo Day de Beyond Waste | Circular Resources Lab, une initiative conjointe d’Impact Hub, GERG-EPFL et collaboratio helvetica visant à appliquer la Theory-U, une méthodologie de leadership du changement issue du MIT, à une transformation de notre modèle économique.

À travers un dialogue génératif avec des experts ainsi que les pitchs des projets (prototypes de solutions) des équipes du lab, découvrez comment le développement humain et social affecte les innovations techniques dans la transition vers la durabilité. Dans un format interactif, les membres du public auront l’opportunité de choisir leurs solutions préférées et même d’offrir leur soutien (contribution de tout type) pour les prochaines étapes.

Nous aurons également l'honneur de recevoir Mme Adèle Thorens, membre du Conseil National depuis 2007, qui commentera chacun des prototypes de solutions sur les aspects suivants:

Degré d’innovation des solutions proposées en rapport avec les débats politiques et publics de ces dernières années
Possibilité/opportunité ou pas de développer les solutions proposées dans les conditions-cadre actuelles
Nécessité/pertinence ou pas de modifier les bases légales en vigueur pour pouvoir développer les solutions proposées
Niveau institutionnel concerné (communes, cantons ou Confédération)
Analyse de faisabilité politico-administrative, en cas de nécessité d’évolution des conditions-cadre

EXPERTS

What if social innovation labs could be the key approach to achieve transformative change towards Circular Economy? What happens when 24 passionate humans from different fields work together in an innovative format over several months ? How can we achieve cross-sector collaboration given, aligning the interests of businesses, public administration, academia and civil society’s diverse/or different ways of thinking and working?

You are warmly invited to the Demo Day of Beyond Waste | Circular Resources Lab, a joint initiative of Impact Hub, GERG-EPFL and collaboration helvetica to apply MIT’s change leadership framework and methodology Theory-U to the transformation of our current economic model.

Through a generative dialogue with experts and pitches of all prototypes emerging from the lab, discover how human and social development deeply impact technical innovation in sustainability transitions. In an interactive format, the audience will have the opportunity to select their favourite solution to which they could potentially contribute.

We will also have the honour to welcome Mrs. Adèle Thorens, member of the National Council since 2007, who will give feedback to each prototype solution on the following aspects:

Degree of innovation in relation to political and public debates of the last years
Possibility/opportunity to develop proposed solution in the current policy framework
Necessity/relevance of modifying current legal bases to enable the pursuit of proposed solutions
Institutional level concerned (communes, cantons or Confederation)
Analysis of political and administrative feasability, in case of the necessity of modifying policy frameworks

AUFSTELLUNGEN FÜR DEN WANDEL

Unsere Beziehung zur Natur, zweiter Teil Von Wasser und Luft durchströmt


Wir Menschen sind Teil der Natur. Diese simple Weisheit ist in der „Realität“ unseres gesellschaftlichen Kollektivs irgendwie vergessen gegangen. Wie können wir uns gemeinsam daran erinnern und an die Naturverbundenheit unserer Ur-AhnInnen wieder anknüpfen? Das Thema ist uns so wichtig, dass momo&ronja ihm gleich zweiNachmittage widmen möchten. In diesem zweiten Teil fokussieren wir auf die Elemente Wasser und Luft. Unser Körper besteht zu einem grossen Teil aus Wasser und „Luftraum“, der Atem durchströmt uns als ständiger Begleiter. Unsere Beziehung zu den Elementen Wasser und Luft möchten wir mithilfe der Aufstellungsarbeit erlebbar machen. Als Pionierin stellt momo&ronja die systemische Aufstellungsarbeit in den Dienst des Wandels hin zu mehr Lebensdienlichkeit. Damit leisten wir einen Beitrag, um auf kollektiver. Ebene leichter von einem Problem- in ein Lösungsmuster zu gelangen. In einer Gruppe von Interessierten arbeiten wir an gesellschaftlich relevanten Themen und reflektieren die
Erfahrungen gemeinsam. Die Teilnehmenden profitieren vom inspirierenden Austausch und einer Fülle an Erkenntnissen. Dieser Workshop findet in Zusammenarbeit mit collaboratio helvetica statt.

Today's challenges call for profound innovation across all societal sectors. Rethinking, reinventing and evolving the way we operate in our society requires a profound shift in how we think, engage and act (activating the intelligence of the head, heart, and hand).

Capacities of deep listening, precise observation, and dialogue
Practices for creating institutional innovations that generate wellbeing in society

- Where and when
The course content is offered on the edX platform (mid September to mid December) and is added to bi-weekly over 3 months.
U.lab 1x launches again on September 13, 2018. Enrollment is open. U.lab 1x takes 13 weeks in total, giving participants two weeks to complete each of the 7 modules.
