One World in Dialogue, wie die internationale Arbeit von emerge heißt, ist ein globaler Gesprächsraum für Menschen mit großem Interesse an der Transformation kultureller Konflikte durch die Kraft des Dialogs. Es handelt sich dabei um eine neue Form von Aktivität, die in ihrer kreativen Reibung über die Polarisierung der Gegensätze hinausgeht, welche die meisten Bemühungen, Veränderung zu schaffen, bisher charakterisiert. Wir sind überzeugt, dass wir als Teil globalen Wandels einen Bewusstseinswandel in uns selbst unterstützen müssen – globaler Wandel wird nicht stattfinden, wenn wir nicht auf neue Weise zusammenkommen, jenseits dessen, was uns normalerweise trennt.

Nobel Peace Prize winner and change strategist Leymah Gbowee explains why, in these times, peace must be loud.

One World in Dialogue versucht, Räume für “herrschaftsfreie Kommunikation” zu schaffen, die Jürgen Habermas als wesentlich für die Gesundheit und Lebendigkeit des sozialen und politischen Lebens erachtete. Gemeinsam, jenseits alter Hierarchien und jenseits unseres Getrennt-Seins, wollen wir eine Kultur geteilter Lebendigkeit kultivieren, die den Boden bereitet für ganz neuartige Möglichkeiten der Veränderung.

One World in Dialogue stellt den Raum für ein globales Gespräch dar, bringt Denker und “Changemaker” dazu, sich über kritische Themen gemeinsam  auszutauschen und hilft den Einzelnen, die Fertigkeiten und Fähigkeiten zu entwickeln, um sowohl Einheit als auch Verschiedenheit in einem Gesprächsraum halten zu können.

emergent dialogue

A 6-month intensive practise program

With Elizabeth Debold and Thomas Steininger

Starting March 17, 2021

emergent dialogue is a process of collective sense-making that arises from the space between us—a space that has an intelligence greater than any of us individually. It is catalyzed by the longing in the human heart for wholeness, connection, and depth, which becomes a creative life force when we each dare to open ourselves to its presence, vulnerability, and power.

Emergent Dialogue

Develop your capacity to support emergence

Virtual Course beginning October 2017

With Thomas Steininger and Elizabeth Debold

Real dialogue provides fertile ground for emergence. What is emergence? 


Some define it simply as order arising from chaos. It’s the arising of the new: A new quality of being together, more complex perspectives on issues, creative solutions to problems. In our chaotic times, human beings need to be able to come together and co-create as we never have before.

This six-month course will introduce you to the basics of what we call the emerge dialogue process.
