The 2 day foundation course was most recently held on 16-17 June 2010, and facilitated by Hub Amsterdam members Lara Toensmann and Bente van Alphen. A group of twelve curious individuals came together to learn about using simple and practical tools for decision-making and conflict resolution. The essence of Deep Democracy as a method is that it seeks to make more conscious decisions in groups, where the voice of the minority is also heard. The Hub hosting teams make use of this decision-making process, hence it is always a great opportunity to share these tools with a wider audience. Deep Democracy courses will continue to be offered at The Hub Amsterdam and Rotterdam throughout the year. Next chance for the 2-day foundation course will take place during Summerschool and again on 1 and 8 October. Check out www.deep-democracy.net to learn more!
