Friends of the Earth Brisbane uses a consensus decision making model meaning that all members are able to participate in the decision making of the organisation.
We believe this is a real credit to our organisation as it is an empowering method which allows full participation my our members. In practice this means that we meet twice monthly to discuss issues that are important to our organisation. At these meetings all members are able to contribute to the discussion and to participate in the final decision making process. A decision must be agreed upon by all participants before being approved, however abstaining from the decision is allowed.
More information on our organisational structure is available here.
Come along to an Introduction night to hear more about how Friends of the Earth Brisbane opperates.
