Our Core Principles

  • Creation and expansion of engaged communities of people is critical to our society, to our collective future success and happiness
  • People crave the ability to connect with each other, to have serious discussions in a safe place, with respectful and supportive people
  • Professional facilitation helps people to build connections by providing a safe place to raise, compare and discuss strongly held opinions on important issues

On-going in-person and global online discussion groups, facilitated by Joel Foner, cover a range of topics including current events, social media, virtual worlds, robotics and the application and implications of information technology.  Additional topic areas to support specific community objectives added on request.
