A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
Show and Tell
Share your knowledge. Collaboratively learn how to cooperate in the modern tech world.
We value learning new things and helping one another, so every Thursday at 3pm Eastern Time we take an hour to share things we are working on. We have deep conversations on the ways we can work together We use screen-sharing to show projects we are involved in and sometimes we doodle on the white board as we talk.
Everyone is welcome to join the chat or just listen. The informal atmosphere supports us getting to know each other better and form stronger relationships. Anyone can suggest a topic for discussion or give a presentation or ask for input and help on a project. We use a poll to determine if we want to record the session. Agaric hosts these show and tells publicly because we realize some of us work alone or in organizations that do not encourage skill-sharing, or may just be interested in broadening their knowledge or sharing some code. So we invite you—our partners, students, colleagues, friends—to take part in watching or giving short presentations.
Get on the Show and Tell Mailing List to receive invitations each week with the upcoming topics.
Do you want to host a Show and Tell discussion or presentation? Here is the email template to send a notice to the list at: firstname.lastname@example.org If you are already signed up on the email list, you should be able to send a notice to the group! Feel free to choose an alternative time if Thursdays at 3PM ET does not work well for you - experiment!
We shall see you soon!
