Making Decisions by Consensus

DOWNLOAD Guidelines for consensus building Be respectful and trust each other.  Don’t be afraid to express your ideas and opinions. Don’t assume that someone must win and someone must lose.  Look for the most acceptable solution for everyone. Think before you speak, listen before you object.  Listen to others’ reactions, and consider them carefully before pressing  your point. Remember that the ideal behind consensus is empowering versus overpowering, agreement versus majorities/minorities.   What is consensus decision making? Consensus is a decision­making process that works creatively to include all the people making the decision. Instead of simply voting for an item, and letting the majority of the group get their way, the group is committed to finding solutions that everyone can live with. This ensures that everyone’s opinions,  ideas and reservations are taken into account. But consensus is more than just a compromise. It is a process that can result in surprising and creative solutions ­ often better than the original suggestions. At the heart of consensus is a respectful dialogue between equals, helping groups to work together to meet both the individuals’ and the group’s needs. It’s about how to work with each other rather than “for” or “against” each other. Making decisions by consensus is based on trust and openness – this means learning to openly express both…

Dinamizzazione delle Assemblee

Download here Proposta abbozzata per la dinamizzazione dell’Assemblea di Sol. Questo documento e’ stato elaborato dalla commissione di dinamizzazione delle assemblee della Acampada de Sol con una doppia finalita’: da un lato quella di favorire la rotazione dentro la propria commissione di dinamizzazione delle assemblee; dall’altro lato quella di proporre soluzioni pratiche e offrire un possibile modello di lavoro alle altre assemblee, commissioni o gruppi di lavoro che stanno nascendo. Questo documento intende chiarire anche che l’assemblea di Sol, nonostante il gran valore simbolico che le viene attribuito, rappresenta e decide in forma libera e indipendente sull’accampamento di Sol, e non pretende rappresentare nessun altro. Perdipiu’ incoraggia tutti coloro che vogliono decidere sui loro spazi di lavoro, quartieri, municipi o edifici, di organizzarsi in assemblea e di decidere loro stessi/e sulle proprie vite. Da qui non possiamo fare altro che offrire un modello di funzionamento costruito sulla pratica e affermare che e’ stato sperimentato in assemblee dai 20 ai 3000 partecipanti. In qualsiasi caso non si tratta di un modello chiuso, e invitiamo a tutte le persone a provare a migliorarlo, giacche’ e’ cosi’ che lo abbiamo sviluppato.Il concetto di assemblea Uno spazio dove si trasmettono informazioni e proposte per cercare di arrivare a un consenso. Il concetto di consenso Le assemblee di Sol si sono autodefinite come spazio di decisione basato sull’orizzontalita’ in cui non si vota ma si prova a forgiare un consenso….
