Preparation process of the conference

The conference was organised through collaboration between groups and
individuals involved in the pga process and local belgrade convenors
“DSM”. However there was not a geographical balance with very little
participation from Eastern Europe. Important decision about the conference
structure and organisation were taken during open preparatory meetings.
This preparatory process started in June 2003 in belgrade. 4 of these
meetings happened in Belgrade and one in Dijon. The final one in London
in May 2004.

Most decisions were taken through consensus but this broke down in two
areas: men-only meetings and the relocation from Resnik to Jajinci.
Thse problems have yet to be resolved.

Everybody was offered to participate and take responsibilities for the
various needed tasks. ..and to be transparent on the way they would take
on these tasks. You can find detailed reports of the various meeting
on the Preparation process of the conference

CONSENSUS DECISION MAKING is when everybody in a group has the same power
to block a decision and that you try to debate until you find a common
agreement about a project or a common solution to a problem, instead
of taking a decision by a vote.

A PLENARY is when everybody meets in the same space and take decision
