Six Ingredients for Forming Communities

There are several aspects necessary to the sucessful formation of sustainable communities and ecovillages. From http://www.ic.org/pnp/cdir/2000/20diana.php
  • Choosing a fair, participatory decision-making process that is appropriate for the group. And if it's consensus, getting trained in it.
  • Identifying their vision and creating a vision statement.
  • Learning what resources, information, skills, and tasks they would need, and then either learning or hiring them.
  • Drawing up clear agreements, in writing.
  • Learning good communication skills, and making clear communication a priority, including ways of reducing conflict.
  • Selecting cofounders and new members for emotional well-being.
