How do we build a global distributed democracy that enables us to create a future that nurtures us and the planet?



How can existing movements, better collaborate and support each other to achieve this goal?

***

// HOW IT WORKS
the collaboration incubator is a mix of a conference, think tank,
leadership & vision worksop.

In the leadership training part we learn about change process facilitation theories, principles and tools. 

We apply these tools to a cause that is relevant for our organizations, our movement and beyond. This feeds our shared vision.

Our think tank explores ideas and projects that connect our different fields of transformation towards a higher purpose. 

The conference is conscious networking and sharing of our wisdom as informal representatives of our fields of change.

// THE CO-INCUBATOR HAPPENS IN COLLABORATION

www.vanillaway.net
PROGRAM DESIGN, CURATION & PRODUCTION

Vanilla Way is a international network of purpose driven change nerds, founded in 2016. Driven by meaning, Vanilla Way is bringing together areas of organizational development, project guidance and lifelong creative learning, in order to support purpose driven teams and networks, in setting their transformative powers free.

Vanilla Way operates as Empty Centered Organisation. This means there is neither a CEO, nor a legal-institution in the center or around our organization. To legally operate, we are collaborating with partners like i.e the Coop SmartDe.org.

Our organisational structure is based on trust. Trust is developed in half-yearly team-retreats, during the self-on-boarding-process and by keeping doing projects with each other. Shared direction and quality is guided by operating according to our purpose and principles.
