I guess it was through the hub network (www.the-hub.net) that I met Gabriela Ender, who told me about Open Space. Soon after I volunteered at one, and it all started from there...
What surprised you the most about this method?
How the law of two feet really empowers people. I was also surprised how it empowers us to take good care of ourselves.
How does Open Space fit into what you do with organizations and / or communities?
Right now I struggle to integrate OS into my current job as a secondary school teacher. But I use it lots to make efficient the NGO work that I do on the side. I'd love to open space every day and earn my living that way. So I guess that's what I'll try to do.

Welcome, Johannes, to the Open Space world community space - a sister site to the OSLIST (the ongoing English-language conversation among Open Space facilitators and enthusiasts from around the world that you have recently asked your question on). Feel free to join any regional, language-based or thematic Groups you see here. We look forward to learning with and from you about all things connected to the dialogue method called Open Space...and perhaps some of us will see you at the World Open Space on Open Space in Berlin this May...
