Sharing Knowledge: Green Societies and Green Cities 0 Reply


The twenty-first session of the Conference of the Parties (COP) and the eleventh session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP) took place from 30 November to 11 December 2015, in Paris, France. The conference gave as main result an international consensus agreed by representatives of 196 parties, the Paris Agreement that will be signed and adopted during 2016-2017.

The session on ‚ÄúCan Countries in transition/development really go fully green and if yes, how best?‚ÄĚ organised by Dialogue Caf√© Novi Pazar in June 2015, provided us the opportunity to identify a cycle of sessions focused on green societies and aimed at sharing smart practices implemented at the local level by different stakeholders (municipalities, civil society organisations, universities, citizens, youth organisations).

Breaking News! РDialogue Café London is looking for creative partners! 2 2

We’re looking for dynamic, entrepreneurial and creative partners to host and manage a Dialogue Caf√© in London. This is truly an amazing opportunity to take part in a groundbreaking social venture and to represent London in the global Dialogue Caf√© network.

Dialogue and Be Happy!

There is no typical Dialogue Caf√© partner – we’re working with schools, universities, galleries and museums, local governments, foundations, social innovation centres and community hubs. The three things that Dialogue Caf√© partners have in common are: creative, entrepreneurial people to manage the Dialogue Caf√©; a space (60-80m¬≤) which is open, accessible and easy to get to; links to networks who would be interested in taking part in and using Dialogue Caf√©.

The DC is ready to be moved and installed. We provide the equipment and will integrate you in the network.

We welcome expressions of interest and proposals from any group or organization that could provide one, two or all of the above.

For more information contact us at: helenabarroco(at) or daliasendra(at)
