That is interesting.
I am not sure about the timings. But will see what to do about it.

Hi!

We discover sociocracy when we travel to UK and met the people of CoTech. I’ve found sociocracy really interesting, because in the 8 years of life of our cooperative, we tried a lot of ways of organization, and we had different moments, when we were 5 members, 10, 15, 20, and 26 (now).

We didn’t implement it yet, but it’s in our plans, at least to know more about it.

I missed the call, I hope I could be there the next one :blush:

Here are the notes from Agaric’s Show and Tell discussion on Platform Coop and on Sociocracy and how we use it… or do not use it:

Thanks for sharing the notes :blush:

We’re starting to know each other better, yesterday I’ve talked with the folks of Bulgaria, they have a really nice co-op.

Regarding platform cooperativism, we’re participating in the ICA Regional Youth Commitee, and we’ve done a conference talking about FLOSS, privacy, anonimty and platform cooperativism.

There is a lot of interest in this issues, but we need to raise awareness about the tools we use in co-operative organisations.

I wan’t to participate in the show&tells, but sadly we have our weekly assembly on Wednesday morning :confused:
