Personalities and communication styles had been causing serious problems in TI for some time so a dozen of the most active participants decided to address these issues respectfully and honestly instead of trying to ignore them. We arranged a properly facilitated discussion that resulted in the following agreements:
- TI focuses on local resilience rather than global campaigning, so those interested in the latter must do it separately.
- Explicit permission is needed from TI participants before anyone speaks on their behalf.
- At present, TI has no active “local authority group”.
- A TI constitution is needed urgently to avoid future problems and a draft will be sent to all TI participants in February.
