The meeting on Dec. 28th 2023 discussed the formation of a new group focused on bioregional education, with Brandon proposing a structure for the group. The team also discussed hosting regular educational sessions and symposiums, and the idea of a self-guided course on bioregional education. They emphasized the importance of clear protocols for hosting events, marketing strategies, data collection, and the need for multiple eyes to review important matters. The team also touched on their personal commitments and challenges of coordinating efforts across multiple scales.
Collaborative Project Management System
The meeting discussed the relationship between two groups collaborating on a project. Paul suggested a system where one group, led by Brandon, manages the website and another group, which includes themselves, creates content and manages a bulletin board (Discussion Forum). Both groups would need to communicate and seek consent when making decisions that affect both. Clare Strawn emphasized the importance of decentralizing infrastructure and prioritizing goals. Doris Olivers suggested the need for a feedback process to assess what’s working and what’s not. Clare Attwell highlighted the importance of having a hybrid system where a centralized nonprofit supports the infrastructure while also receiving feedback from users.
