The Lighthouse Café
A relaxed space to meet and explore significant ideas and themes in a welcoming atmosphere, with people from around the world.
At H3Uni we explore ways of working together to build a worthwhile future for all.
Our Lighthouse Café is an online space where we can meet informally to shine a light into a particular idea, from different perspectives.
Each Café is 90 minutes. We use video conferencing, visual thinking, screen sharing. You can join by computer or by telephone.
At the end of each Café, the room is left open so that the dialogue can continue. You are also invited to join our community and continue the dialogue there, sharing information with others.
Topics are chosen from the many dialogues in and around H3Uni. The Café atmosphere may be informal but the subject matters are of the essence for the issues we all face. Previous Cafés have focused on topics like Collaboration and Transformation.
Upcoming Lighthouse Cafés
Café Regular hosts topics of current interest for the sake of reflection in thoughtful dialogue. Visitors are offered some initial ideas, and the group that is present creates the ensuing conversation.
Date to be confirmed
How much experience can I realistically pay attention to? What difference arises from the choices that I make? Becoming aware of one’s state of awareness has implications for future consciousness.
The Café Extra invites a speaker to introduce a topic that they care about, for visitors then to consider together in dialogue. A richer mix of well informed ideas to stimulate discussion, collaborative reflection and shared perception.
A talk by a leading researcher in the chosen topic followed by discussion facilitated by Dr Anthony Hodgson.
Access is by invitation (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Knowledge for the 21st Century
July 10 2018
Professor Alfonso Montuori invites us to a discussion of his current thinking on Knowledge for the 21st Century which is also a new programme he is to teach at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Alfonso`s study of social creativity is very relevant to the aspirations of H3Uni. We hope to further our thinking about future education through this dialogue.
