Moderation / Facilitation
Moderation – or facilitation – is the art of structuring a conversation. Facilitation supports people in having constructive, respectful and well-structured discussions, in which everyone can contribute. Facilitation by an external facilitator takes pressure off the groups members and prevents conflicts as it lessens power dynamics and old patterns.
We are a pool of moderators, trainers, process and conflict facilitators and mediators who are available to social movements, political groups, organisations and networks for their facilitation requests. The pool defines itself as emancipatory and progressive, but otherwise has no common political orientation. It is primarily used to connect groups with suitable facilitators. We do not organise events or start any projects.
What is special about this pool is that we build bridges between solid, competent facilitation and grassroots groups or social movements. Because not only large organisations with huge budgets need facilitation, but also self-organised groups.
Through some on-boarding criteria to the pool, we want to assure a certain but unbureaucratic level of quality. However, as a loose pool, we as individual facilitators cannot take responsibility for the quality of others. If you had problems with moderation, please send us an email and we will try to deal with it accordingly.
