In this podcast, Nick Joyce and Marc Coppola interviews Diana Leafe Christian, author of the books 'Creating a Life Together' and 'Finding Community'. She lives in a sustainable community in the North Haven Ecovillage in Carolina where they constantly have activities concerning physical, social, and economic sustainability. Human beings in groups and community behave the same way and have the same kinds of challenges. The same kinds of resolutions tend to help those challenges. Regarding governance and decision-making, Diana encourages sociocracy rather than consensus. Sociocracy has 3 big values: equivalence, transparency and effectiveness. She ends by saying Governance is in the heart of the community and that the 3 aspects of a healthy, thriving, successful community are Oxytocin, Good Process and Communication Skills, and Effective Project Management.
