We hold a shared interested for community and solidarity initiatives...
When noticing a lack of digital tools supporting those initiatives and to democratize self-organization, we decided to develop software based on these essential principles.
Sharing a common intention is essential for thriving together. The shared intention must be clear, explicit and constantly reminded.
Information transparency is a prerequisite to self-organization. To let everyone be autonomous and take part in decision making, information must be accessible to all.
Self-organization implies a dynamic and evolving form. Its governance must allow this agility.
Then OrgBook was born!
