#Occupy Open Space Activities

with one comment

Catalyzed by the meteoric rise of Occupy Wall Street into public notice and discourse, outsiders are connecting the dots between their pet issues and OWS‘s focus on “the unchecked power of Wall Street speculators and corporations“. Many are urging the Occupiers to speak to their own hot issue, to help them carry it into the limelight. Others are urging the Occupiers to choose their favored high-leverage strategic focus to counter the power of “the 1%“. Still others are urging Occupiers to expand their perspective to embrace even larger issues – beyond economic injustice and power concentrations – particularly the rapidly emerging meta-crises of peak oil and climate change. Below you will find an example of each one of these.

I find it especially interesting how OWS, in all its chaotic but embracive process, seems to deal with all these people who offer them suggestions. Their approach looks remarkably like Open Space Technology.
