Why of Theme “From Chaos to Cosmos”?

Our theme is inspired by the experiences of the world during these two years. While Process Facilitation works through Divergence to Convergence we couldn't think of a better theme than this.

  • Sensitizing about diversity
  • Building consensus to enable decision making
  • Enabling organizational change
  • Tapping group creativity
  • Planning strategically in an all inclusive approach

What does our Logo say?

"A logo is just not a communication, it's the Identity. It's the period at the end of a sentence. Not the sentence itself." -Sagi Haviv.

We weaved our logo for the 7th IAF India Facilitators Conference with the same belief. C stands for 'Cosmos’. The waves within are reflecting Lush Green aura of Kochi (Kerala). All together, merged with the chosen colour themes of International Association of Facilitators. With this, we bring together the colour palette of the facilitation world.

This logo is reflective of the cosmos that we all inherit within. The microcosm of this cosmos would come alive during 7th IAF India Facilitators Conference 2022!
