What’s a World Cafe?

A world cafe is a chance to start conversations and discuss and link ideas about a particular topic. In solidarity with World Refugee Week, we will be hosting a large (hopefully outdoors, but you know the Irish weather system as well as we do) World Cafe focusing on the reality facing refugees in Europe, the EU’s crisis in response and what the people of Ireland can do to assist and keep pressure on our government to respond humanely and proactively.
