Project Us is a movement for change that invites individuals, groups, schools and communities to come together to discuss the Sustainable Development Goals and our role in bringing them about. Over a cup of coffee in our World Cafés, we explore how issues at local level connect to the UN’s Global Goals – the international pathway towards creating a more equal world by 2030. Project Us is a forum for people to share ideas, find our voices and connect with one another. And then turn our talking into action!
“Ours can be the first generation to end poverty – and the last generation to address climate change before it is too late.” Ban Ki Moon, UN Secretary General, 2015
What is a World Café?
Prior to the start of each Project Us event the Concern team set up the venue to look like a café, with a number of round tables for 6-8 people, decorations, and of course coffee, tea and nibbles. The Café is facilitated by the Concern team, who ask three simple questions about a chosen SDG. The Café ‘patrons’ discuss the questions, writing the various points of view on the ‘table cloth’, which are collected and formed into a reported. Each World Café session lasts 60-90 minutes,
The Concern Project Us team is available to set up a World Café in your school, business or community group. Everyone is welcome to attend, and don't forget to tell your friends and family! It will be a dynamic evening of dialogue, debate, questions and ideas.
