About the Proposals category

Propose community-wide changes.

Proposals should be limited to 200 to 500 words and must describe a specific problem, a proposed solution with an expected outcome and the resources required.

3 chapters will review the submitted #co-initiatives:proposals where each chapter will provide feedback in 200 to 300 words. These chapters may be composed of 1 or more people and may be of local or national scope. The chapters form a quorum of 3, of which 2 positive reviews are needed to move the proposal into the next phase, the community #co-initiatives:reviews.

Co-initiative submitters may improve their proposals based on the reviews as much as they like. Different chapters will review each proposal based on random selection.

Examples of valid co-initiatives:

  • Changes to community-wide documentation such as the orientation and activist guides
  • Consensus about where the next global #zday event is hosted, chapters should formulate specifics like e.g.:
    • Ticket costs
    • Venue location
    • Number of seats
    • Catering
    • Live streaming capabilities
    • If known, who will present and which subjects
  • General improvements for the global TZM community in terms of communication and collaboration
