The PWCP is governed on the principles of sociocracy, the consent-based decision making system.
What is Sociocracy?
Sociocracy is a system of governance which seeks to create harmonious social environments and productive organizations. Recognisable characteristics of sociocracy include testing for consent as opposed to majority voting (to make sure everyone’s voice is heard), discussion by people who know each other, and operating in circle groups with distinguished circle responsibilities. We use Sociocratic methods in this work to help us make sure everyone’s voice is heard and to increase our productivity when working in groups.
