I think "Conversation Week" is a great idea however it begins.  I have an international educators forum on the net and am just starting another, a sustainable communities forum in Israel, where I live with my husband, an American diplomat.   Israelis, of all religious stripes, like Americans, prefer to argue instead of converse.

I wonder how you intend to nurture/encourage the conversing part of this activity?  And, what is your intent?  To have a conversation for a week or enable participants to come away with new ways of communicating?

Also, would love, in other sessions to work in international conversations.  You'd be amazed how deep and energizing they can be.
