Process for a New Future

CNVC is engaged in a multi-year project to create a new global NVC organisation. Members of the global NVC community have been invited to rethink, from the ground up, how we will organise ourselves. You are invited to follow this "New Future" process as it unfolds. There will be chances for your voice to be heard, and your talents may help to move things forward towards a collective dream being realised. This page serves as a portal to finding out about the process.

What is Happening Now

We are currently nearing completion Phase 3 of the process, "Integration." In this phase, the Integration Council (which was elected by the Working Groups of Phase 2) has worked to develop an "Integrated Plan" for the future, and has selected an Implementation Council for the next phase.
