Methods #4: Engage the community

Here we explore how to tighten the social and communicative ties between members of a potential community.
Inside a community you find many different units, ranging from collectives to single members. All indiviudal units of the community will have their own thoughts and ideas and doubts, a will to be heard, valued and understood as well as the potential to develop together. The needs can be satisfied or opressed by the common structure, by imposing or stimulating the shared process.

Working towards building a participatory, engaged and active society, we share some of our experiences from building a team, setting up a community space and develop a vision and shared values. You also find examples of self-managed projects which are organized in a horizontal and inclusive way.
