With all of the unrest around the globe, it is more important than ever that we, as humans, learn to communicate our goals and ideas more effectively.
This site is a tool to learn how to use Occupy based consensus communication and voting to improve your own group dynamics. Inside these pages, you will find the methods, rules, and examples of how to organize your own discussion. Whether you are planning to incorporate this style of communication into your community, club, meeting, class, or other group, the methods will all be similar.
If you are interested in learning about the history of the Occupy Movement, General Assemblies, and consensus voting, a history page is provided.
I personally believe these tactics work best in groups smaller than 100, but Occupy has proven that much greater numbers of people can effectively communicate using these simple techniques. Don’t believe this could be used on a large scale? Check out this video of occupiers going over their hand signals at the start of a general assembly (and using a form of vocal projection known as a “mic check“).
