Open Space

Open Space Facilitator Training in Guelph!

Next workshop: January 29th and 30th, 2014

For details, see our Open Space Facilitator Training blog post, or read the Open Space Flyer.


Open Space Technology is a group facilitation method that clearly structures and encourages human cooperation, builds new relationships, and unearths new and strategic solutions and action plans. It can be used with groups of ten people, or a thousand. It is especially useful when situations are complex or bogged down in conflict, where there are diverse interests and perspectives, and where there is urgency and an unclear set of solutions or next steps.


This course is for formal and informal community leaders, strategic planners, project managers, business and organization leaders, entrepreneurs and neighbourhood organizations, public engagement specialists, consultants – anyone who wishes to create active involvement and personal responsibility from the people attending their meetings. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.


January 29th and 30th, 2014, lunch included. Two days of workshop training with a third follow-up day in late spring (in person, or accessed through teleconference after the initial training).

Where? Day1: Dublin Street United Church. We are using this space to allow for a large group using Open Space to help plan for the Seed Community Food Hub . Facilitator training participants will be involved in this application for Open Space as part of Day 1.

Where? Day2: City Hall, Guelph
