Community and Network Governance 101

How to address the typical challenges that communities and networks face

2 hour participatory online workshop

New ways of organizing are on the rise. Networks, communities and movements are becoming increasingly common as ways to organize in a highly distributed, agile and responsive manner. Networks have many advantages, and they are also very complex. Starting one is easy - but growing and sustaining one is hard work!

Are you a membership organization, and looking for ways to involve your members more? Are you an emergent movement, looking to create your first elements of "structure"? Are you a volunteer-run community, looking for ways to create commitment to the project? Are you trying to organize yourself to get funding?

This workshop will provide you with starting points and ideas on how to address some typical challenges that most networks face.
