Saving Democracy - What Could Happen


Wednesday 3F

Convener: John Kelly

Notes-taker(s): John Kelly


Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


We voted individually on whether each of 16 future events were highly likely, unlikely, or uncertain.


We noted that voting on future events works even if we strongly disagree about what should happen.


Event voting is an example of voting to discern - deciding what is important and meaningful, before deciding what we will do about it.


This is just one example of group democracy akido which can help foster collaboration among people who initially believe cannot or should not collaborate.
