Anything that makes positive change in the world





 

Anything that makes positive change in the world can only be done together, making collaboration a key skill for any progress. Groups often struggle with basic questions:

  • Who decides?
  • How do we decide?
  • Was did we decide?
  • Was everyone heard?
  • What it someone disagrees?

“We don’t want command-and-control hierarchies. But what’s the alternative?”

The alternative is more democratic than democracy. Sociocracy! (= People who work together decide together.)

Using common sense, sociocracy combines:

  • Trusted teams with transparency.
  • Self-organization with clarity.
  • Flexibility with structure.

But you know what’s weird? Sometimes people get upset when they hear about sociocracy. Why?
“What? You’re telling me NOW? I would have NEEDED this 10 years ago!”

Well.

You know now!

A collective permaculture mandate with sociocracy (Henny Freitas)

The Permacultural Collective Mandate of Alto Paraíso de Goiás, Brazil, was born with transparency, equivalence, efficiency, and a dynamic structure, capable of seeking unity within diversity. As a movement that seeks to keep people’s culture alive through caring for the Earth, caring for each other, and sharing knowledge and resources (human, natural and financial) fairly, there was no governance more appropriate to adopt than sociocracy.
