The objectives for this one week module are to:

  • Raise key questions about democratic governance, about “deciding how we want to decide”
  • Review model examples of governance and decision-making from existing cooperatives, such as Arizmendi and the EcoVillage, as well as some of the democratic organizations represented in the class
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of our class teams, the class itself, and propose how they might be more effective
  • Reconsider our understanding of democratic power
