A Taste of Sociocracy aka Dynamic Governance
Jun 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

How do you get your family, business team and in our case, 180  people to make decisions, resolve conflicts and feel that they have been heard?

Narara Ecovillage is using Sociocracy. This is a decision-making and governance system that:

•  Is inclusive, transparent and equitable, includes all voices

•  Promotes a better use of NEV’s resources and co-ordination of activities

•  Leads to care, respect and co-operation

•  Ensures that results of decisions are reviewed to determine their ongoing usefulness

This system has relevance for communities, businesses, non-profits, families and more.

Come and have a ‘taste’ of this methodology in a presentation by the founder of the Narara Ecovillage, Lyndall Parris.

‘Narara Ecovillage is going from strength to strength year by year – and it is wonderful to witness their  journey. They are definitely at the forefront of Sociocracy in practise in Australia that I am aware of at the current time.’ Gina Price, Australia’s leading Sociocratic Consultant.                                                                                                                                      Gina Price and Lyndall Parris co-presented the Narara Ecovillage experience at the inaugural international, on-line Sociocracy Conference earlier this year.

Friday 28 June, 6.30 –  9pm,  Narara Ecovillage. 25 Research Road, Narara.

Program:

6.30: Welcome – cuppa or glass of wine

7pm: ‘A Taste of Sociocracy’

9pm: Home to bed!
