The following exercises and structures are designed as resources that may be useful for the Summit Hubs to deepen their experience of emergent processes during the New Story Summit. There is a variety of materials that we hope will you find helpful and we imagine that there will also be many other creative ideas that emerge from within the Summit Hubs themselves that will facilitate an emergent process, arising from the first days of the Summit.
The following are offerings that we hope will help make your Summit Hub as rich an experience as possible. None of this is a prescription and we imagine that many Hubs will either have their own facilitation expertise in their group, or may choose to find their own unique way of engaging with the New Story.
We have also prepared some guidelines for Summit Hubs, and how they can run in parallel with the Summit.

The way the Summit enters Emergence will be inspired by Open Space Technology – a participatory process in which Summitteers convene their own groups according to what is inspiring and calling them at the time. Open Space is one way to catalyse collective wisdom. If you want to know more, you can read a history of Open Space Technology, or watch an explanatory video.
The Power of Asset Based Approaches
The Power of Asset-based Approaches is an approach to community-based development, based on the principles of appreciating and mobilising individual and community talents, skills and assets (rather than focusing on problems and needs), and Community-driven development (rather than development driven by external agencies).
