Activating Cool And Thoughtful:
Cool Convenings are facilitated events designed to translate the Principles of Cool And Thoughtful into action.
We use events as a way to bring the philosophy of being Cool And Thoughtful to life, for we believe that the value of good ideas lives in the manifestation of them. Each "Cool Convening" promises to leave participants with an experience of authentic conversation, meaningful connection between fellow attendees, and a new way to approach problems-solving.
There are two kind of Cool Convenings: at our annual "convention," we guide participants through a 3-hour facilitation as a deep dive into the impact of the current understanding of Cool and the possibilities that could arise by redefining Cool as empathy and engagement. From here, participants brainstorm solutions to specific problems based on this understanding of Cool.
The second format is in an informal one, where we come together for curated conversation over food or drink. Here, each Cool And Thoughtful Principle is presented with a correlated discussion question for us to explore in pairs and as a group.
If you are interested in co-sponsoring or hosting a Cool Convening, we would love to be in touch!
