Diana Leafe Christian gave a presentation hosted by Environmental Change-Makers, on "The Three Aspects of a Healthy, Thriving Community.” We hoped it would be attended by people who are interested in intentional communities, and those who want to know more about "sociocracy" and the "N St. Consensus Method" for group communication. I learned so much from the presentation and the experiences she shared.
Here is the description from the event:
How do you create "community glue," to generate feelings of gratitude and trust?
What are good process and communication skills?
How do you set up effective project management?
Diana Leafe Christian has been part of intentional communities, group living, and ecovillages for more than two decades. Recently, she has been working with a community governance and decision-making method called Sociocracy. It means "governance by peers and colleagues," and it uses feedback loops to help an organization continuously improve.
