Workshops on offer for McCoCo 2013


Special Events

CoCo Open Space

Even with the broad and exciting bunch of workshops already on offer, anyone present at McCoCo is encouraged to offer and ask for any workshop they like.

For this to happen we organise the CoCo Open Space, developed and tried at last year’s McCoCo and the CCI in Hungary the year before. This is a fast and effective way of bringing people together who want a workshop to happen. This CoCo Open Space  will happen on the Thursday night and supports the spontaneous creation of workshops during McCoCo and thereafter! Smile

CCI-UK Business Meeting - new style

The last two years at McCoCo we had a CCI-UK business meeting that was pleasantly short (one hour, between afternoon workshop and evening meal) and kept to a clear format and time-frame. First we listed the topics that mattered to us. Then the time left over was equally distributed over all these topics. There were no discussions, only sharing opinions within the allotted time for each topic.

At the end people indicated which three topics mattered most to them. The three top choices became the three issues for a CoCo Café later on.

Afterwards many topics developed organically between people discussing what they had heard.
