What is Facilitation?

Facilitation is a decision-making and collaboration method that shall make things easier, by helping people to work with responsibility. A facilitator will enable participants of a conference or meeting to find a conclusion step by step by saying their opinion freely, without having to control them. The role of a facilitator is more comparable with the conductor of an orchestra or a referee in sports. Our facilitation services are available globally, not only in Japan. 


Worldwide Experience

Worldwide ICA has trained nearly 50,000 facilitators in countless countries and at the United Nations. In Japan we began training facilitators in 1987, and long before were using these methods widely.  Of course, they have evolved as the world's culture also evolved. We travelled from Shibetsu in Hokkaido to Okinawa, to the Sea of Japan and to Fukushima and Osaka, and many places along the path of Shinkansen.


Balancing Japan and Overseas Efforts

Opportunities to develop the forgotten underpriviledged people using these methods causes us to balance international activities with in Japan training and facilitation. We do training and facilitation with every development project, ranging from India, Kenya, Vietnam, the Philippines, and many more.


Our Vision

Through enabling people to find and act in unison on their deep hopes and dreams, instead of being focused on their past experiences, we can achieve worldwide lasting Peace. One step at a time, we unite and build communities to become profound and radiating this new human culture.
