Decentralise Now Gathering for the 99%



On the 17th of September 2015, the fourth anniversary of the birth of the Occupy movement, you are invited to come as you are to “the Mountain of the Sun” and join the first Decentralise Now gathering on Mont-Soleil, Switzerland.

We need to synergise our efforts to become more effective in creating a new reality, a new world, a new way. It is time to “Occupy the World“ and create an alliance of the alternatives. This is a call for alliance!

We do not sit idly by whilst we see countries being economically water-boarded by the banks. We cannot ignore the pressures on everyday people that these austerity measures have created. There is another way.

We are prepared for a wave of synergism that decentralises the power structures. It is time to create a culture of self-empowerment, synergy and symbiosis between each other and nations.

We are the people - we are the 99%

Whether you already are a change maker or want to become one, whether you are Occupy, Anonymous, Transition, Maker, Greens, Pirate, Podemos, Permaculture, Rainbow, Hacker, Open Source, Electronic Frontier, Commons, New Edge, Edgeryder, Danach, Neustart, Anti-WEF, Panarchy, anarcho-this or anarcho-that, social entrepreneur, artist, philanthropist, guerrilla gardener, insider, outsider, this-activist or that-activist, or just somebody that is aware - this call for alliance is to you.

It is time. Join us to Decentralise Now. In St-Imier, the home of anarchism... where it all began in 1872. We gather on the 17th of September to move ahead. The main event will be an intense collaboration and exchange that weekend, from Friday evening at 19:00 to Sunday at 17:00. This is an open ended gathering. We will continue beyond that weekend and you can join us at any time.

You are also able to participate online, if you can’t join us at the Décentrale on Mont-Soleil, Switzerland.

WHEN : SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2015
WHERE: DECENTRALE, MONT SOLEIL, ST-IMIER, SWITZERLAND

We intend to make this event prix-libre. We will need your financial support. Please expect to expend what you can afford to pay for such an event. If you can give more, please do. If you know people that might be able to make a financial contribution, please encourage them to do so.

The New Decentralized Internet - MaidSafe

MAID = Massive Array of Internet Disks; SAFE = Secure Access For Everyone

MaidSafe is an open-source program that enables a decentralized internet platform, called the SAFE Network. MaidSafe distributes all data on the network without the need for centralized servers. Data stored on the network is either encrypted or cryptographically signed by MaidSafe connected applications (clients). In either case the network itself cannot decrypt any of the data.

The MaidSafe system turns all connected devices into SAFE Network nodes that collectively store data for all MaidSafe users. MaidSafe allows public and private cloud data storage and processing within the SAFE Network. Data storage is automatically decentralized. The data is spread redundantly across many disks and devices owned and managed by many different users. No one person or corporation has an intact copy of a user's file.

To account for resource usage, the network uses Safecoin transactions. Safecoin Is a coin that is generated and protected by the SAFE network and stays on the SAFE network. The network can confirm and exchange coin ownership via a digitally signed authority from the coins last owner. This operation is ‘network atomic’ which basically means the network will make sure all copies update to show the transaction. This is a different approach to the ‘blockchain’ mechanism employed by bitcoin.

The SAFE network allows many millions of transactions per second and the larger the network the more transactions per second can be executed. Safecoin only holds the last and current owner. It does this to make sure the current owner has signed authority from the last owner to take ownership. This allows coins to be transferred between people very easily and without delay. Safecoins use a proof of resource to create coins and this is a system that is waste free, so the proof is that a node or application is providing immediate value to society.

Join the 2014 Beau-Sejour Gatherings, November 14-30

In addition to this years main Beau-Sejour weekend gathering from November 21st to 23rd, we want to offer you some additional possibilities to join our discussions and brainstorm some ideas about how our societies should go forward. Just fill in this Doodle and let's see who is here during which sessions - and we'll spontaneously accommodate the topics to shared interests of the participants of each session.

Just fill in the times that work for you in the Doodle here: http://doodle.com/k9shkrd7q7mpm778

This years main Beau-Sejour gathering will follow up on the results of the previous years and the calling topic will be...

"Finding the Seed for the New System"

During last years gathering, one central topic that emerged was how the workings of current democracy, finance and civil society are all heavily influenced by a single defining pattern, circling around the way money is created.

This pattern defines the evolution of virtually all aspects of our current societies. This year, we will be searching for new patterns, which can encourage the growing of the new in the shadow of the old.

This years Beau-Sejour gathering will for the first time be taking place on the La Décentrale property up on Mont-Soleil, above St-Imier.

Itinerary for the "Finding the Seed for the New System" Beau-Sejour weekend:

Friday, November 21, 2014

You are welcome to join us on Friday already at 17:00 for us to be cooking and eating dinner together.

At 19:00 we all meet for our evening session. Together, we will review and discuss the topics that have emerged during the 2012 and 2013 gatherings and what has happened as a result with the creation of the Permavillage and La Décentrale projects on Mont-Soleil. We will talk about assumptions we've come to last year, like how the workings of current democracy, finance and civil society are all heavily influenced by a single defining pattern, circling around the way money is created, and how this pattern defines the evolution of virtually all aspects of our current societies. This will give us a head start, laying out the terrain we will be covering on Saturday. At around 21:30 we will end the Friday evening session.

Saturday, November 22, 2014

At 9:30 we will start our morning session, prepare and eat lunch together around noon, continue with our afternoon session at 13:30 and end Saturdays session at 18:30 . There will be the option of having dinner together as well for those of you that like to stick around Saturday night.

Sunday, November 23, 2014

Again, at 9:30 we will start our morning session, prepare and eat lunch together around noon, continue with our afternoon session at 13:30 and end the 2014 Beau-Sejour gathering at 16:00 on Sunday.

Accommodation

There are beds available for you to sleep in the house of La Décentrale, so there should be no need to look for other accommodation. If you like to stay here during the nights, please let me know, so I can make sure there is a bed reserved for you.

How to get here

This year for the first time, the Beau-Sejour gathering will take place at La Décentrale on Mont-Soleil.

You can easily find your way to Mont-Soleil by public transportation, taking the funicular up from St-Imier:

http://funisolaire.ch/index.php?page=p/horaires

La Décentrale is located just 150 meters from the top station of the funicular.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

La Décentrale Mont-Soleil

Das Genossenschaftsprojekt La Décentrale auf dem Mont-Soleil ist Treffpunkt und Spielraum für Menschen, um Ideen für Innovationen zu entwickeln, erproben und erfahren. Innovationen, die sich bewähren, tragen zu einem Kulturwandel zu einer selbstorganisierten Zivilgesellschaft mit nachhaltigen, dezentralen und resilienten Strukturen bei.

In La Décentrale treffen sich Menschen mit unterschiedlichen Muttersprachen, c'est pour ça that we speak and write dans des langues mêlée.

With the property La Décentrale, we are setting the seed for the Permavillage Mont-Soleil, a social space, open for innovative approaches to current and future challenges in society.

While this will be a place to live, it just as importantly is a place to make a living. With the Permavillage and La Décentrale at its core, we want to create less of a living community as is typically the case in eco-village projects and more a collaborative, innovative environment with an entrepreneurial spirit, where individuals and groups can connect and leverage their synergies.

We will be practicing and evolving forms of openly collaborative and socially responsible living, sustainable food production, focusing on better enabling and optimizing the use of already existing infrastructure and buildings, designing for inter-generational living, with a cultural, educational and economic exchange between urban and rural areas, planning around a local economy and a high degree of self-reliance, while building resilient ties with the economy at large.

The Permavillage does everything to encourage open doors and open structures within and towards its neighbours, the local economy and society at large. We want everybody to be able to contribute and participate. This open space shall be provided and kept, free of any expectation that the offered opportunities are utilized as anticipated. The doors shall remain open and the space be held.

The activities this project will include

At the beginning, La Décentrale will start its activities with multi-day seminars for small groups on topics related in different ways to the Permavillage project. Further economic activities will be the constructing of small housing, yurts, and roulottes, the renovation of the main building in various phases, as well as the permaculture project, a buvette, and the processing, refining and preservation of foods, including a line of local gastro-foods offered in partnering buvettes and restaurants in the area.

Further activities such as various kinds of product recycling and reuse projects, peer-to-peer education projects, alternative media projects, graphic design and software development projects or a political music festival, all are not beyond the scope of intended uses for the property either.
The permaculture project will initially focus on producing vegetables for a subscription based veggie-basket service in and around the hamlet on the one hand, and offering introductory permaculture courses on the other hand.

In collaboration with the local farmers, we will work to integrate additional farm land currently used for dairy farming and meat production, enabling the permaculture project to expand beyond La Décentrale. The project will expand to include the cultivation of locally uncommon plants with high nutritional and health benefits, such as khaki and amaranth.

One of the main objectives of La Décentrale will be to offer an environment and a place where people can come together to work on evolving common vision between different individuals and groups. Beyond the scope of the Permavillage itself, we will also start to do this same kind of work together with other organizations, such as Initiatives of Change in Caux, the Green Phoenix Congress on Schweibenalp, and Danach in Zurich or Vision 2035 in Bienne. The seminar offerings of La Décentrale will emphasize these aspects.

How it will work

The La Décentrale cooperative will be the proprietor of the property and negotiate service agreements with individuals and associations, making the property available as a resource for projects that are in line with the objectives of the organization, as described in this document.

The projects will feature a complementary economy based on an alternative currency that will encourage a large degree of gift economy, sharing and exchanging, and an interest free local money system, reducing the need for projects to generate profits in official currencies. To this effect, the cooperative will develop a decentralized alternative currency that creates money by directly funding projects.

The members of the cooperative will have funding rights in relation to the amount of their shares. In a semestrial process, the cooperative will determine the amount of new currency being issued, and select the projects eligible for funding. This will be followed by the individual members allocating their share of newly funded currency to these projects. This ability constitutes the primary benefit that members receive for their financial participation in the cooperative. As the cooperative grows, it intends to provide its members with liquid democracy based funding mechanisms.

Why the property and its location are ideal for this project

La Décentrale is a 10 room, 1904 built art-nouveau villa, surrounded by a 1 hectare property with mature park trees, sunny meadows and a small forest area. The house has in recent years been reverted to it's original state and will be minimally renovated to preserve it's historic value. It is structurally in good condition and is on the list of buildings for monumental protection.

La Décentrale is located in the heart of the hamlet Mont-Soleil, at 1200m altitude, near the mountain top and on the mountain ridge that carry the same name. Mont-Soleil is well known for its renewable energy installations, Switzerland's largest solar power station and wind-power plant. It serves as a research and demonstration facility that attracts a significant amount of visitors. Mont-Soleil is also well known for its astronomical observatory and its Vipassana meditation center.

Mont-Soleil is reachable by a funicular from the community of St-Imier, 400m lower down in the Vallon de St-Imier, which in turn is connected to the Swiss railway network. Also, small roads connect Mont-Soleil with St-Imier and in the other direction with the other villages of the Franche-Montagnes plateau.

The Mont-Soleil hamlet is not currently in any construction zone and is governed under agricultural zoning restrictions, with exceptions granted on a case by case basis. Establishing a new zoning plan for the hamlet is a long overdue promise of the community of St-Imier, but as was seen based on an information evening earlier this year, will be controversial, with different groups of people unhappy for several different reasons about solutions proposed by the community. There is an opportunity to develop an alternative proposal for a special "Permavillage" zoning plan that will be better able to accommodate and balance the various interests at play. The newly formed, local alternative-green party "Libertaire" will support us in developing this project, mobilizing support by the people and getting the political backing and approval.

The region belongs to the state of Berne, but with some neighboring districts having gained independance to form the state and republic of Jura, the Bernese-Jura region is being granted special autonomous rights. On November 24, 2013, the peoples of the region voted against a proposed formation of a larger canton Jura. With that, the region is set on a path to further strengthen its autonomous status.

St-Imier was at the center of history in 1872, when anti-authoritarian worker-associations from around the world gathered for the Congress of St-Imier to form the first international anarchist organization. The anarchism movement has advanced since then in many different regions in the world and has flourished to an abundance of political philosophies and related movements, such as the green movement and more recently the Occupy movement, which has sprawled a large set of new bottom-up and grass-root-democratic organizations active today.

All these historic dimensions tie in well with different aspects that are at the core of the vision for the La Décentrale property and the Permavillage project, such as permaculture principles, the transition town network and eco-villages. With the Permavillage we intend to embrace this abundance of influences and innovate to a new level of collaborative living.

We want the Permavillage to be a project that integrates well with the context that it is placed in. The environmental, socio-economic, historic and political circumstances of the area make Mont-Soleil an ideal fit for this project.

Aspects of the organizational structure

During the initial phase of the project, special consideration will be given to develop a solid framework for the organization's communication and decision making processes. A set of non-binding conventions should evolve based on best practices for various circumstances.

While the members of the organization together form the formal general assembly, the organization is directed by the organisation's board, which forms ad-hoc by inviting the organizations members to participate. Based on meritocratic principles, the general assembly can also elect non-members for eligibility to participate in board meeting sessions. The board uses high quality participatory processes to whenever possible form unanimous outcomes regarding the selection of individuals and associations and their ability to use resources of the property for their proposed and/or ongoing projects. The project will collaborate with the association Participate.ch to develop and evolve the facilitation methods that are used in these meeting sessions of the board.

Beyond the board meeting sessions, the organization will follow open organisation practices, inspired by the 40 years of experience gained in the open source software development movement, striking a balance between basic-democratic and meritocratic organization structures.

We currently use openly shared documents such as on Google Drive and Pages on iCloud for collaborative editing, Loomio for exchanging thoughts on ideas and concerns and voting in the spirit of temperature checks, and Trello for an open team based organizational workflow on tasks. The project generally encourages anybody and everybody to contribute and participate in its processes.

The various projects of individuals and associations, to which the La Décentrale organisation makes its resources available, will in principle be free to organize their internal affairs as they see fit, but such organization structures may be taken into account as part of the selection process. Another selection criteria should be the openness of the projects. Are they structured and documented in ways that make it easy for other individuals and organizations to participate or to learn from the project and duplicated it elsewhere?

The La Décentrale organization will also build structures and knowledge networks that will aid the various projects to succeed. As such, it will operate as an incubation hub for the new ventures of the projects, making the required professional support available to them, providing administrative support and aiding to find finances.
