Learning to Connect: Building the Cafe Culture Movement

Learning to Connect: Building the Cafe Culture Movement
Learning brings vitality to individuals, organisations and communities. But, like all other habits, it can only be sustained if it is nurtured and given plenty of opportunities to be practised.

Learning brings vitality to individuals, organisations and communities. But, like all other habits, it can only be sustained if it is nurtured and given plenty of opportunities to be practised. Businesses that value and promote learning in all its forms – whether it occurs in a formal training course, development of a new project, group recreational activities such as book clubs or informal chats over coffee during break times – can reap the benefits of a workforce who are alive and engaged with their surroundings. Café culture is a feature of organisations where learning is part of everyday life. In these vibrant environments, time and space are set aside for people to relax, converse, learn something new and connect with others. Innovative ideas flow naturally in settings where learning of all types is intrinsically valued.
