Hello Francois et Bonne Annee to you! Yes I get it!

I am still slowing down until I get back on Monday 13th Jan to jump into a new river...

Hi Francois,

Thank you for the welcome. I will write soon asking for possible opportunities for Sociocracy practice in the UK in the summer of 2014. I will also share the events as soon as I have the flyers. Exciting times!

HI Francois, thank you for welcoming me here, and for alerting me to the workshop with John Buck this October! What a strangely auspicious day - 18th of October .. the main reason why I am getting active here is in the hope a process of Sociocracy Learning can be started here in Scotland in preparing for the 18th October 2014 Scottish Referendum. Unfortunately I did not know about Sociocracy or J.B.'s last workshop up North last April (2012), as it would have been a better timing to get people trained from then on.

Have looked round yesterday on www who from the network here says something on Sociocracy and Civic Governance, and came across a post from Sharon Villines (March 2010) on!topic/congenialist/bLNayc9Tt5s, which got me curious to find out whether she could be invited here to Scotland round about the 18th October this year. Now I see John is up North that time anyway, so I am wondering could his stay be extended and both can be persuaded to do a workshop funded by means available through Citizenship learning orgs here...

Looking at Sociocracy through a wider national democracy lens is something different from looking at it through the lens of a business or small alternative community. If Sociocracy is to be made known here in Scotland, I feel now is the time, and - unfortunately - not through workshops in Findhorn or solely through other alternative initiatives alone.

Could it be possible to arrange something that can bring people together from all walks of life here now, in the wake of the urgency of education for decision making in something as big as the Independence Referendum?

If so, who are the people connected already with (and if poss. established in) sociocratic practise who could be engaged to take Sociocracy to the next level?

best wishes and looking forward to hear from you

(and yes, maybe post on the wider forum here, have had a look, and as it is so quiet right now there, I think person to person linking here might work faster?)

Thanks Francois. This reply is rather late. I have just become a father and all of a sudden I am struggling to keep up with any thing.  So, just to say thanks and I will still stay connected but somewhat in the background.

Wow thanks for this Francois. I can remember Peter Koenig mentioning to me as a way of developing community trading networks and I immediately knew it was beneficial and the way forward for what I wanted. It has taken me a few years to connect with other people who are developing it in their work. Great to meet you. Maybe you could make the Sociocracy Social in Brixton on 4th november. Sue
