Commons Coordinating Council
The Commons Coordinating Council is the heart of the organization of the Gabriola Commons
This is the place where teams, projects, groups and community members share ideas and information and ensure the health and well-being of the Commons. The discussion is always energetic, creative and collaborative.
The Commons Coordinating Council is a monthly gathering of team representatives, groups and community members.
Council runs with the following format:
- 2 facilitators for 6 months each on a 3 month rotation.
- A 20 minute discussion on a pre-selected topic of broad Commons interest.
- Teams report on their activities.
- Any decisions taken at Council are by consensus, using a non-heirarchical approach.
Monthly Council meetings are a great way to learn about the Commons.
Council meets at 7 pm on the first Tuesday of each month upstairs in the Farmhouse. Anyone is welcome to attend.
