Report GA + invitation to a people assembly and a training
Published on April 30, 2021 by Leen Schelfhout

Dear collectives

happy to share with you the report of our last general assembly! We discussed if we should explore options to accept donations in cryptocurrencies. Here is what we thought about it.
There was a clear tendency towards ‘yes, let’s explore’ but also a lot of very valid concerns. Accessibility, practical and legal issues and taking a sociocratic/democratic decision on this are very important. 

Next to that, a warm invitation to two events:

May 3th - 20:00 CEST
One of our collectives 'Citizenspring' is organising a people assembly on 'Bitcoin: system change or climate change'.  We invited two great experts on the topic. More info and registration here. (be fast, spots are filling up)

May 8th - 11:00 CEST: register here (feel very welcome! sessions are multilingual✨)
First session of a series of trainings organised by All For Climate, XR Belgium and XR Global Support on 'financing your ideas'  Topics covered in this first session:
  • How to organise finance and accounting in your collective
  • How to start a fundraising journey (for absolute beginners)
  • What is fiscal hosting? How can it be useful for your collective?
  • What extra support your group can receive from the XR network and A4C?
Goal: give you a concrete idea on how to get started with finance within your collective.
🗣 Interactive session with lots of space for questions and answers. 

The next trainings will be on ‘setting up successful crowdfunding campaigns’ and ‘fundraising from institutions and large donors’. Interested in attending the next sessions? Click on the same register link, indicate your interest and we will be in touch!

Have a great regenerative weekend!
