WELCOME TO CONVERSATION OF THE MONTH
WHAT IS CONVERSATION OF THE MONTH?
In cultivating effective grass roots democracies the XR FDH aims to enable conversations to happen in society. The CoM is just one way we think might help. It is a ready-made discussion package that anyone should be able to pick up and run with a little application. Get started below.
WHAT IS THE BASIC MAKE UP OF A DELIBERATIVE DISCUSSION?
Each discussion has three stages
Input: Some content to introduce the topic, provide information and stimulate discussion
Deliberation: A process with which to carry out the discussion
Integration: Sharing and sometimes gathering of results and opinions, post discussion
THAT SOUNDS A LITTLE PRESCRIPTIVE. WHY CAN'T WE DECIDE THE TOPIC AND PROCESS?
The CoM is just an offering to help get people started, something we think might help such sessions become more common. The reality is that designing a session with content and a process does take time and we are just helping by removing some of that burden. We aim to crowdsource topics and processes that are most popular and then, in time, empower people to create their own resources.
