Step one: Create the space (setting) and the cafe questions. Ensure that the tables are far enough apart that other conversations aren’t distracting. The setting should feel informal - as if you were sitting in a coffee shop or at someone’s kitchen table. You may want to put a talking piece on each table, along with the Cafe Principles postcards and markers. World cafe questions should be simple, generative and invite diverse perspectives. A good model to follow is to ask a broad, context-setting question for the first round, a clarifying question for the second round, and an example-based question for the third round, but there are many ways to approach developing cafe questions, depending on what the group needs.
