By switching hats, each participant can change their perspective and contribute to a holistic solution.

Participants are divided into small groups and discuss at different tables. After a certain time, the participants change tables and bring new ideas into the discussion. Through this method, a wide range of ideas are generated, which are then brought together in a final group discussion.
- 3. Open Space: Open Space ist eine Methode, bei der die Teilnehmer selbst entscheiden, welche Themen diskutiert werden sollen. After a brief input from a facilitator, participants can propose their own discussion topics and get into groups to discuss their ideas.
