This category is where anyone may post REGIONAL-SCALE proposals or requests for the rest of the community to consider. It is a placeholder for the 'living' body of requests and intentions that folks in the community hold for each other ---
The proposals help us self-organize (1) to harness or direct region-wide attention and action and (2) shape the culture and discourse of our community. ---
All proposals should clearly indicate
1. who are the intended participants; 2. clear next steps about how to participate/support a proposal; 3. any time limits to participation, 4. contact person, if necessary.
--- Processes: One proposal per Discussion thread. Proposals/Requests can be posted at any time. A bulletin will be sent to NEPC list serve monthly, listing new proposals.
Post all other items here or this will catch anything not already categorized.
