Community Agreements and Creating Safe(r) Spaces (Roundtable) - NASCO Institute

Session materials from “Community Agreements and Creating Safe(r) Spaces (Roundtable),” presented by Devin Case-Ruchala at NASCO Institute 2016.


Community agreements are important and powerful tools that co-ops use to hold themselves accountable to their shared norms, values, boundaries, and aspirations. If there are implicit codes of conduct where you live, we especially invite you to explore making them explicit! In this roundtable, participants will share their struggles and success in setting community agreements and discuss strategies for making their spaces safe (or at least safer).
