Asia Pacific Sociocratic Circle
The Asia Pacific Sociocratic Circle Coordinated by members in the Asia Pacific Sociocratic Circle
To coordinate publicity, fund-raising and training activities in the Asia Pacific region, supporting NVC teachers and trainers in reaching those living in under-resourced areas, particularly those at war and/or living in poverty.
History and background
A group of 5 CNVC trainers who are also friends began teleconferencing together in 2005, formulating strategies for collaboration across international boarders. In 2006, these individuals extended an invitation to NVC leaders living in other countries to contribute an elected representative to CNVCâ€™s Global Coordinating Circle. As of May 2006, the Asia Pacific Sociocratic Circle draws delegates from 6 countries (Australia, India, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Sri Lanka) who participate in monthly teleconference sessions.
Teleconference â€˜meetingsâ€™ are facilitated using Sociocratic principles and provide an open forum for discussion, allowing members to share what is important to them and request support from others towards collaborative projects.
Members in the Asia Pacific Circle also intend to facilitate a face-to-face meeting of NVC leaders in the Asia Pacific Region on an annual basis, starting with a gathering that will take place in Queensland, Australia in September 2006.
