A Visual Flavour of Open Space

Here are some visual links to Open Space in action. They evoke for me the spirit of Open Space, and why it is so valuable and successful, why it works, and why self-organisation is such a natural process…

Many show the simplicity of self-organisation, and how we can create much from very little. Many show the passion of the facilitators and the participants. We see natural light, and inner light shared socially. And, most of all, we see emerging action, and getting much done in the world…
