Organization

The Summer School 2015 was organized by a group of around 40 people. As a group, we decided by consensus, using methods of grass roots democracy. We live in different places all over Germany, worked together via internet and phone and met in person every six weeks. Most of us were not paid and contributed voluntarily.

The most important body was the plenary, which consisted of all active team members. The main work was done in the different working groups:
> Programme
> Logistics
> Public Relations
> Finances
> Coordination
> Group dynamics

The group members developed concepts for their area of work, agreed on them with the other working groups if necessary and carried them out independently. The organizational group worked in cooperation with the climate camp, whose members sometimes took part in the meetings. Moreover, the organizational group collaborated with the Konzeptwerk, a think tank based in Leipzig, Germany.
