The Global SOS Network is a peer-to-peer network of rebels around the world, that allows for collaboration, co-development and information-sharing related to self-organizing throughout the whole movement.
This network sessions are co-facilitated by Global SOS Network Link Members from across the movement, Global SOS Network Link Members are connecting XR groups internationally, such as the Global Support SOS team, which initiated this network to decentralize SOS development. Parts of the network are supported in their development by 'Global SOS Network Maintainers', for example language specific network, but these roles do not have authority over their network.
Decisions about developments in the network are done in the weekly Global SOS Network sessions, collectively. The Global SOS Network using Open SOS 2.0 being the modular, international standard for self-organization in networks and larger social organisms. More about Open SOS 2.0 you can read here.(for more advanced SOS users)
