Structures manifest the way we act. It is time to practice methods that embrace collaboration, creativity, transparency and equality.

The open election is one basic principle of the sociocratic circle method. With sociocracy people decide together so that everyone is heard and no one overruled.

Sociocracy is used by all kinds of organizations: small and medium sized companies, schools, hospitals, NGO´s and NPO´s, co-housing projects, ... the proof of practice exists.

For this reason a group of passionate pioneers of education and social change created a booklet as inspiration for the election process of the class representative in schools.
