Over a decade's worth of experience of facilitating, training and skillsharing consensus by the Seeds for Change co-operatives has been distilled into this 180 page handbook.

More and more groups are using consensus to make decisions, and awareness of the advantages of consensus are seeping into mainstream consciousness. In the UK the Camp for Climate Action introduced thousands to the process, and Occupy groups all over the world began experimenting with different ways of reaching consensus in 2011.

In A Consensus Handbook we explain the spirit and philosophy of co-operative decision making as well as providing practical guidance on how to facilitate a consensus process. We look at common situations and explain the skills and tools your group can use to ease the path to a decision. We've included material on some of the pitfalls and problems you and your group may face - and have provided some suggestions of how to deal with them!

Whether you're new to consensus or are experienced; whether you think it's the best way to make decisions or are struggling to make it work: A Consensus Handbook is for you.
