We are creating a network of World Summit Cafés hosted by members around the world that would provide gathering places for world changers to discuss and manifest the visions of unity that the World Summit proposes. These cafe’s are a way for hosts and visitors to "be the change they want to see in the world" by getting actively involved in their local communities, sharing the good news about the World Summit and bringing forth new ideas. Each café is not only just a casual gathering spot for engaging with the local community over coffee and tea, but is also a forum for scheduled meetups, open houses, and "mini-summits". We are building a global network of cafes where mini-summits will happen around the world, thus being a "glocal" structure (global and local).
The WS Cafés are NOT be hosted in expensive retail spaces, but rather in people’s homes or apartments that they already have, as long as they are suitable to entertaining visitors while sharing coffee, food and discussion. Hosts simply open their doors to visitors that have located them through our website or maybe a future app (think of current apps and websites such as Airbnb.com, Couchsurfing.com, Worldpackers.com, Trustedhousesitters.com, World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms (Wwoof.net). It is up to individual hosts to decide if they want to provide lodging accommodation, but if so it should be offered for free, where possible, to other WS Hosts (or at least discounted to regular members), as is done with sites like Couchsurfing, and in the spirit of the gift economy that the WS promotes.
