Open Space Technology, a new way to find and create solutions
and the way forward

What is Open Space Technology ?

Open Space Technology (OST) is a new method for working effectively with large groups
(8 - 2000 participants) which has already used more than 100 countries to date, particularily with complex issues concerning the future. A simple, but very powerful framework creates the right conditions for a dynamic process of discussion and cooperation. Every single participant who contributes with his knowledge and experience influences the end result.

Because participants in an Open Space Conference all participate actively, and talk to others regardless of function or background, OST creates a high level of commitment among participants and much networking across boundaries, usually resulting in a much deeper understanding of the issues as stake well as new ideas about the way forward
