datetimelong - 4 Jahre, 8 Monate her - Gemeinschaften (EN) - GEN Europe (englisch)
The first Open Forum has been successfully tested as a communication tool for more transparency in GEN Europe. The Open Forum is a dynamic initiative coming from CASA, the Council of Sustainable Settlements of the Americas, with Letticia Rigati as a focalizer; there are several spokespersons in each GEN region that are responsible for spreading the agendas and dates. GEN has globally organized several forums where members of GEN organizations and networks from 5 continents gather to deepen, acquire and share knowledge about the structural aspects of our global network! As already known, the next GEN Europe general assembly in Findhorn GEN +20 will see new members introduced to the Council. The Open Forum was considered a good opportunity for people interested in the election process to ask current Councilors questions. We were discussing proposals, questions and looking into the different aspects related to the work of Council and the Councilors for an hour. Thomas Meier, as a representative of GEN Germany, put forward a proposal on sociocracy as an electoral system and Theo Bondolfi, representing GEN Suisse, proposed the implementation of meritocracy, as the most adequate voting system according to him. The Open Forum is not a space for decision-making, nor does it claim to be representative; however, being able to answer questions that arise regarding our activities and the complexity involved in managing such an expanding network, inspires members to become more interested and offer to help, to get involved in the management of an organization that needs a lot of volunteering to respond to all the demands and possibilities that come our way. Therefore, the Council also advises that we use the Forum in national networks to encourage involvement and participation of members! A must-try! We have two upcoming forums soon with focus on the other general assembly decisions as well such as the budget and statutes changes. We invite you to join us in these two calls so as to start preparing your voting or proposals. We need an efficient Council; one that will be dedicated to and driven by our common interests, and be on course with our vision and the strategies we have set.
