locations and cannot meet face to face. We highly recommend its

Open Space Institutes Around the World
Space Institutes have been created in various geographic locations
by facilitators of Open Space Technology who were interested in
promoting the technology and creating learning communities about
Open Space Technology as it evolves and grows, as well as to support
trained facilitators of Open Space Technology through mentoring
and coaching. The institutes are networks of people; the coaching
and mentoring services are not charged for, but offered as a volunteer
service of support.
