Governance

Another key area to discuss and solidify in the early planning stages is Governance.  How will decisions be made?  Also we could include Ownership here and Corporate organization (ie non-profit, etc).  Keith has written a fair bit in his discussion paper, linked here.

More to come… open participation!

    On April 16, 2011, after reviewing different models for decision-making, Lanark Eco-Village members decided to use “Formal Consensus”, the model developed by C. T. Butler (http://www.consensus.net) as our primary model.

    We decided also to use the colour card system to improve communication in the meetings. A quick guide to the colour cards is here: http://www.mosaic-commons.org/colorcards

    We agreed also to be guided by the principles of Consultative decision-making. A good summary of these is here: http://www.planetbahai.org/cgi-bin/articles.pl?article=167
