Slide ditch the representative systems it is time!

what is project
Open Source Governance?

Open Source Governance aims to design a blueprint with which a group can collectively and inclusively form questions and find answers that can help organize their community. The project is an interdisciplinary research and social design process that uses debates, workshops, case studies, publications, and other mediums to empower groups to find possible ways of self-governing. This is done by investigating the wisdom of the crowd. At the core of the idea lies the notion of governmentality. The concept departs from the disappointment with the representative systems in inclusively and fairly organizing societies, and observation of available tools (namely open-source programming) that can replace or challenge the current systems in place.

About the project

Collectivity

Its all about collective thinking and inclusivity. We meet each other, discuss ideas and concerns, and make things possible through a collective will

Rethinking

By thinking outside of the box, unlearning the complexity, and rethinking how we do things, we try to create a simpler and more efficient flow in how we organize ourselves

DECISION-MAKING

With respect and care for all parts of the society, collective decisions can happen directly by all members. This helps involving people in affairs that directly affect their livelihood

Blueprint

The main aim of project OSG is to design a blueprint with which different societies with different sizes and qualities can be able to form their own regulations

The podcast

Here are the podcast episodes and the public sessions

Events and workshops

The debate sessions and workshops include regular OSG public sessions and workshops hosted by OSG partners, as well as presentations and talks. Debate sessions and workshops are intended to first talk about different aspects of collective decision-making, and second, to actually make a collective decision within that community. This includes discussing the basic idea, its possibilities, ethical questions, and practical possibilities/obstacles. This is also where we try to collectively diagnose a problem for a small community, and attempt to solve it. During these sessions, we will use the Communal List and the Socratic Debate to reach a common question and a set of possible answers to that question. Then we will try to come to a collective decision, based on the given choices.

Our events, workshops and public sessions are announced on our social media, as well as on this site under events.
