Intentional communities

Members of intentional communities, like for instance cohousing communities and ecovillages, want to live and work in community. Sociocracy can help here. It is perfect for your community if you want to:

  • make decision-making about content, not about people
  • find a way of including people and increasing participation
  • enjoy living and working together
