What Are Community Agreements

Group policies/community agreements can be developed with stories for clarity and understanding. Whenever people come together as a group, we form both a community and a culture. At the NESAWG conference, we are looking for a respectful, comfortable, open, curious and friendly community and culture. Community agreements help us to find concrete ways to create this culture and to talk about and through conflicts without creating one. With these practices and tools, we can challenge and challenge each other while recognizing that we all come from different places of knowledge and transformation. Take the time to define what a Community agreement means. Change this definition if it is useful: There is no right way to shape these agreements. Please see our sample blog posts for more information on creative ways to involve all community members in creating your agreement. What are the steps to create your own community agreement? Follow these steps: Consider dividing the work into several parts as well. Defining community agreements or ground rules can support a better dialogue with oneself, the group and the community. As Monica Brasov-Curca told me on Facebook: “In a wonderful dialogue training, the trainer divided the exercise of the basic rule into 3 parts.

1.) Community Agreement 2.) Workshop conditions 3.) Intentions of the participants. And we co-created all three. it`s really nice. Group members are accountable to each other and to the community and responsible for direct and open communication, transparency, and how we share and distribute power. Based on our core values of responsibility, awareness, radical coalition building, compassion, imagination and strength, these agreements aim to create a space where authentic relationships can be built, growth can take place and change can take root at the community, societal and global levels. A community agreement (also known as a group contract, learning agreement or class agreement) is a joint agreement between learners on how we want to work together during our time together. This may include guidelines on what it means to be respectful, rotational expectations, or accessibility needs (p.B. please don`t bring peanuts to class). Discuss and decide how the group will work together builds a collective responsibility to make the classroom a safer place and give students the opportunity to express their needs by jointly developing a productive and equitable learning environment. .
