Kiez Burn e.V. - Request for clarification - Consensual doocracy
Following my recent initiative, I wish to seek formal clarification from the board of Kiez Burn e.V. on a few specific questions.
Here's how I understand the consensual doocracry process:
Anybody in the community can bring forward an initiative.
If they seek advice on this initiative, and they listen to the concerns being raised, and they make an earnest attempt to respond to these concerns, then:
So long as no laws are being breached
The Kiez Burn e.V. foundation, and its board, will permit this initiative to move forward
The key question here is does a proposal or initiative require explicit consent from the board or not?
Also, for further clarification:
Under what circumstances will the board step in to block or veto initiatives (which are within the law)?
I'll write more below about my motivation and so on. I'd like to keep the specific questions as clear as possible so the board may offer as clear an answer as possible.
EDIT: I'd like to add a third question to this:
Is the Kiez Burn e.V. board willing to let Kiez Burn 2020 fail (not happen at all) if the community does not carry it?
I think it's important to directly acknowledge this. Much of my experience has been that if some core people believe something might endanger the event happening, they will block. I think greater clarity here will be helpful.
