John Buck, the foremost native English speaking trainer on the subject, is visiting the UK from America to be with us uniquely, to conduct talks and training on Sociocracy (Dynamic or Collaborative (Self) Governance), and to mingle with like minded souls.
This will be relevant to anyone interested in organisational democracy and structure, and tools that are as efficient and effective as they are inclusive, participatory and consensual, and is applicable to Transition Town communities, forward thinking businesses, co-operatives and social enterprise, non-violent communication, permaculture and co-housing communities, and local service delivery.
We begin with an evening introduction talk, participatory workshop and social, and follow with a rare opportunity to participate in a comprehensive 2-day workshop, and further short training on subjects in line with demand.
