Dialogue & Deliberation

Wed, October 2, 2002

October 2, 2002. The Taos Institute joined with the The National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation, Alexandria, Virginia, USA, to bring together dialogue and deliberation leaders in a welcoming, respectful and informal atmosphere in order to work towards five goals:

   1. defining and clarifying our work and our field
   2. knowledge-building and sharing information
   3. building skills
   4. meeting and getting to know our colleagues in the field
   5. initiating collaborative projects.

Meeting these goals has the potential to greatly strengthen the dialogue community and, eventually, the practices of dialogue and deliberation. There were 44 organizations that have committed to helping ensure that these goals are met - before, during and after the conference. For more information see: http://www.thataway.org
