We live in an age that is very aware of governance and decision-making. At present the thought is to have a participatory decision making policy which means that everyone’s input is important and listened to. Who makes the decisions and how they are made are of vital importance to come to terms with together. Power imbalances can be reduced or eliminated by using fair decision-making methods that spread power equally and offers checks and balances against power abuses.
Decisions that have a time line and of importance to the continuity of the community will ultimately be made by the elected Directing group. Research will be done in committees with group consensus as the deciding element.
We will all learn about cooperation, truly listening, willingness to let go of personal attachments in the best interests of the group, trusting in the process and in each other. We will be helped along on this journey by professionals who are experienced and adept at skilled facilitation with results.
