Session Themes

Guidelines for submitting a new session theme

See video tutorial A session theme is a topic that you propose for being handled in one of the upcoming Global SOS Network sessions. All members are able to submit and vote on these suggested themes, and the highest voted theme will be included in the upcoming session (unless another topic is given preference because of some reasonable priority) Please do not include real person names or real group names in your theme description. This web page is public on the internet, and we need to protect privacy. If you want dedicated support for your group, it is a better idea to submit a focused SOS coaching request

Adding session themes and voting is possible for users with the 'Network Link' membership'. If you like to become a Link member see this page

trust as the priest in the marriage between SOS and Regen
The word trust is missing totally from XR - despite the EU being so serious about it that it's given perhaps more than two million euros to philosophers to convince people that people should trust expert scientists. And also despite it being a super-fucking cool word which is probably… Read more
Autonomy and cooperation
How might we organise if we thought of XR groups and roles as cooperative in addition to/instead of autonomous?
How should we self-organise the Governance of Self-Organising Network?
How should we co-evolve governance of the Self-Organising Network? What are the tips we can learn from other networks, like the Open Software Movement? How do we mitigate for dedicated individuals having to take on too much or should that be welcomed as at least they are… Read more
