Wed, Feb 12: Empathy Cafe: How might XR design and implement Empathic Direct Actions?
Our work group has been holding a series of Empathy Cafes on 'building the XR Facilitator network'. We are now switching to a new more direct action topic of; How might XR design and implement Empathic Direct Actions? This is for taking our facilitation to the streets.
Unlike Non-Violent Direct Action (NVDA) - Empathic Direct Action (EDA) is specifically designed for;
Spreading a regenerative and empathic way of being.
Overcoming polarization and supporting constructive dialogue and action between all people so they can constructively work together to address the climate crisis and deepen democracy.
Offering listening to the public and fellow activists.
Offering constructive dialogue with the public
Offering Empathy Circles to the public and fellow activists.
Demanding that those in power (politicians, CEO, etc) take part in empathic dialogue around the issue of climate change, etc.
To begin with, this is a more abstract discussion to think about :
> What is the feasibility of it?
> What are the principles behind such an action?
> What would an action look like?
> How it might be implemented?
> Who might take part?
> Where could it be held?
Post any thoughts, ideas, insights, etc about this below.

EDA Video sample
This video is a sample of how we took listening to the streets. It is not XR, but gives a flavor of this sort of listening and dialogue actions we can plan.
