LS are effective in all four levels. Below, check out a big project (a summit for 250 people) that helped advance the Restorative Justice movement.  With a one day workhsop and phone ocaching, Liberating Structures were used by community leaders to design and facilitate this 3-day confab in Colorado. Self-organization in action!

For the United Nations ITC-ILO, Henri and Keith offered a Liberating Structures immersion workshop and follow-up consulting sessions. (The Centre is in Turin Italy.) The focus was how to organize for promoting decent work and sustainable development around the world.
