The World Appreciative Inquiry Conference

Support the generation of Constructive Conversations for the Common Good !

About the project

Generating constructive conversations for the Common Good.

We are happy to host the World Appreciative Inquiry Conference 2019's edition. Our hope is that everyone from all over the world will join us in Nice, to engage constructive conversations for the Common Good, discover what is happening around Appreciative Iinquiry and above, thus  supporting the AI Dream to grow  !

The positive revolution brought by Appreciative Inquiry turns around organizational and managerial ways of thinking and sheds new lights on the life of organizations, but not only ...It also enlightens individual developments: human beings do not necessarily have to go through painful episodes to live better, they can also and above all rely on their strengths and develop them. This is also true for families and organizations as shown through many experiences lead by AI practitioners around the world.

However, if we want to consistently take care of the common good the scope of public life has to be further focused on. There are already examples of action in the city that illustrate the power of the totality principle: when a large number of people experience it, it awakens the collective creative forces, creates an effect of concentration of these forces and leads to committed action towards social, economic and sustainable development innovations.

The WAIC 2019 in France will precisely focus on this set of experiences and questions in order to envision how AI is contributing to a better world, from the one to the whole, in our human communities.

We invite you to bring your support to all our colleagues and other participants who want to join and who would need a helping hand. We believe that such a solidarity is part of our AI values.
