Co-initiative method

Feedback and suggestions are best provided in the Google Document mentioned in the above blog post. But general feedback and questions that’s not about the written proposal is welcome here as well.

This video explains the co-initiative as well:

Fascinating idea.

Wish it was tested more.

My take on that would be to try it for the next global #zday event. It’s always a surprise where these events take place. A bit more transparency would be great.

It would also push chapters to already think ahead about a plan. Because with the co-initiative, you would describe the basic setup of the ZDay you may offer. Location, ticket fee, seats, recording/stream capabilities, potential speakers in mind and such. Being able to host a ZDay fully in English is a must in my opinion as well when you opt for a global event. Live translation takes the fun out of it for me. But yeah, that’s me :slight_smile:

With that information we can compare this with other chapters. Then all chapters may of course continue their ZDay idea, but we’ll select one as the global event based on how well prepared they are and what they can offer :slight_smile:

Having a global event in the spotlights is great for publicity. We then as one global movement promote a single event, which then takes it up a notch compared to previous ZDays (in theory). So it might also act as an inspiration for other chapters to do better. And might also bring up the question in the general public; “is there a ZDay/chapter in my country as well?”

And having the planning transparent might also help other chapters to organize their events, because they then have a template/runbook for such an event.

There has been some reviewing going on already in Google Docs. But let’s move this method forward by reviewing it and then approve when all feedback is processed. Then we can actually use this to arrive at decisions as a community, when needed.

For example for the TZM 2.0 project, there aren’t many people involved other than the small group that’s working on it. It would be cool to finalize the proposal for this co-initiative method and perhaps work on TZM 2.0 as a community? How does that sound @DerLink, @bjk and @kublermdk?

For reviews I proposed that 3 chapters involve themselves with this. Any chapters willing to help out? For example @chapter_lithuania and @chapter_poland are quite active here on the forum. Still, these aren’t many people. Maybe you can ask more people to join the forum and the chapter group?

The more people join the discussion, the more it becomes an inclusive decision.

I’ve just asked people on TZM Poland group if they fancy helping out with that. If not I’ll proceed to do it alone regardless starting on July 4.
