Solucracy is an open source method to stimulate a dynamic of collaboration on territories taking care of the social fabric and and turning the needs of the inhabitants into solutions


Note: the following entry needs assistance with content and editing. Please help us complete it.


Problems and Purpose

The goal is to create a new tradition of collaboration on territories (villages and small cities), bringing up the individual citizen needs annually, sharing them with everyone and organizing workshops to imagine solutions collectively.[1]

Origins and Development

It started with an application, a map to prioritize problems and evaluate solutions, then, seeing how an application was leaving too many citizens behind, turned into a method that can be implemented without using any technology.

Participant Recruitment and Selection

Participants are sourced through community organizing. The method's creators suggest asking the following questions to identify possible recruits:

  • Are there any associations or collectives in your area that would be willing to invest a few hours to help you?
  • Are there companies that participate in local life and would be interested in getting an overview of the needs of the community?
  • Were elected officials or candidates in the next elections ready or willing to engage citizens?[1]

How it Works: Process, Interaction, and Decision-Making

The method involves 4 steps :

  1. Gathering a local team
  2. Bringing up the needs and making them visible to everyone
  3. Imagine solutions collectively
  4. Support project groups[1]

Each project is documented on the website to make sure each local experience profits the global community (in french for now)
