The dining hall here at PCB was transformed on Wednesday night for a global and engaging discussion called the World Café. The World Café is a collective conversation encouraging participants to contribute their thoughts about posed questions by moving between tables, meeting new people, and discussing new insights. Facilitators conducted a conversation involving three questions about world peace and how to obtain it. As participants moved tables, took turns as 'ambassadors' (table speakers) and shared thoughts, an artist was illustrating their words and phrases to create a large mosaic of thought. This resulted in three unique illustrated pieces defining a collective answer to a single question. PCB participants, facilitators, and staff then decided to present one of the banners to the Institute of Peace as a gift from Project Common Bond 2011.
