IDL AND UBI GENERAL ASSEMBLY
At this meeting, we move our frustration to a place of solidarity and action based on mutual respect, acceptance, and love. We have assumed responsibility for the future of our society, our earth, and most importantly, our own lives.

The Immaterial Digital Labor and Universal Basic Income General Assembly is a gathering of people committed to making decisions based upon a collective agreement or consensus model. There is no single leader or governing body of the General Assembly – everyone’s voice is equal. Anyone is free to propose an idea or express an opinion as part of the General Assembly. The Assembly will be led by facilitators only just as much as needed, no more.

IDL AND UBI GENERAL ASSEMBLY | HOW IT WORKS
Each proposal follows the same basic format – an individual shares what is being proposed, why it is being proposed, and, if there is enough agreement, how it can be carried out, or whether it need to be moved to a later talking point.

The Assembly will express its opinion for each proposal through conversation and hand gestures. If there is positive consensus for a proposal – meaning no outright opposition – then it is accepted and conversation or direct action begins.

If there is positive consensus for a proposal – meaning no outright opposition – then it is accepted and conversation or direct action begins. If there is not consensus, the responsible group or individual is asked to revise the proposal and submit again after all other proposals ahead of it have been made. Revision can occur until a majority consensus is achieved.
IDL AND UBI GENERAL ASSEMBLY | COME PREPARED
Put potential action items, thoughts, or ideas, in this etherpad beforehand, or come with an idea for the group.

IDL AND UBI GENERAL ASSEMBLY | GROUPS
Within the General Assembly, there may form naturally Working groups that focus on supporting specific initiatives or topics relevant to next steps. All groups are open to anyone interested in supporting. Anyone can propose the creation of a new group.
