Build connectivity / a network

The goal of the DGOV Foundation is to create a highly-potent group of approximate 150 people which are bond together in a vision and by a culture allowing them to build and implement distributed governance models.

We expect other organisations and members of the community to host DGOV events. This is encouraged and supported by the DGOV Foundation if they are trusted parties by the DGOV Foundation. There please always check that the organisation organising a DGOV event is clearly stated.

On Rejection

  • any core member can reject, but needs to justify if challenged
  • lack of cognitive diversity concerns

Transparency

Everything should be transparent, except of

  • private data without consent (names, addresses, contacts)
  • security (passwords)
  • budget details, like salaries (low resolution reports are ok)

Moral code

Being excellent with each other (respect, support, caring). Intentional dishonour of this rule can lead to ban.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
