Facilitation of workshops and events, e.g. colloquium of the 60th anniversary of the rural women in Bavaria in May 2008 or conduction of a worldcafé during the international food aid conference in May 2007.

Basis of facilitation:
facilitation.jpg Facilitation (synonym to moderation) is a means to support groups in achieving their objectives. Appropriate methods are used that range from small tools e.g. for brainstorming to complex instruments like a future search. Facilitating a group process makes me responsible for the communication process, while the participants are the experts of the content. An important help is the use of visualization. Together with a thorough preparation and a good documentation I see facilitation as one of the best ways for a group, to efficiently achieve sustainable results, that are based on consensus.
