As I assume you are all aware of the sad news that Burning Nest 2020 won’t be happening. I know this is devastating for a lot of members in our community but with the state of the world today it was the most sensible way forward!
But, work for Nest is still afoot! There are some exciting changes coming and we are looking for people who want to get involved and help make it happen! Burning Nest is co-created through the principle of Consensual Do-ocracy in conjunction with the 11 principles taken from Burning Man and extended with Each One Teach Oone.
There are 2 big changes that we are currently working on to help enable us to co create through Consensual Do-ocracy! One is the Advice Process and the other is a new Circle (used to be teams) currently called WOW (Ways of Working) but we are open to other names so if you have some ideas we’d love to hear them!
Some of the goals for the changes are:
- Enable Decentralization
- Increase Transparency
- Work smarter not harder
- Reduce Burnout
The Advice Process is a way to collect sufficient information and engage those affected plus put it out to the wider community to reach better decisions. This is a powerful tools to help support all of the goals. It is new to Nest but exists in similar form in some other burns such as Borderlands and Kiez Burn.
The WOW Circle will look at how we work together and what we use to do it to support the Goals. This will cover things like what tools we use, processes we need to help, where we need structure and what they are responsible for and how they interact (board, circles, community etc). We are looking for a range of people with different skills to get directly involved and will also be creating a lot of Advice Processes to get feedback from the Community.
