Our community

The people who move us

Recrear’s ecosystem is composed of all the people that make up our community. Our strategic decisions are taken in collaboration with our board and core team. We invite advisers, programme participants, and collaborators to take part in our strategic decision making whenever our decisions would affect them directly, or when further skills/knowledge are needed.

Our Governance principles

We cultivate a regenerative culture within the organization. We care, value and listen to each other. We recognize each other’s contributions and emotions.

We cultivate a learning culture. We allow time for providing feedback, digesting our organizational learning, speaking our thoughts and transforming tensions.

We are transparent in how and what decisions are taken. There is clarity about who can make what kind of decisions based on the level of involvement and skills; and what kind of responsibilities are linked to it. 

Decisions should be made by those affected by them, those implementing them, and those with the required skills/knowledge

The decision-making model shall maximize the agency of Recrear’s members.  This includes time for input, ability to take decisions within one’s role, possibility to take risks/learn from them, and the possibility to change the level of involvement.

A research oriented board of directors

Recrear’s board of directors acts as group of advisors that promotes lateral thinking, the sensing of opportunities, and experimentation. Ultimately, the board collaborates with the core teams in making strategic decisions.

The way these decisions are taken is by collectively inquiring into questions that we are posing at all levels of our organisation

Our board is relationship-driven, based on open and intimate relationships. We understand that board members are volunteering their time and we we believe that being part of the board should be based on reciprocity.

We are reshaping our board of directors.

We look forward to engaging people who:

  • Have participated in our programs;
  • Have experience in different contexts/countries;
  • Represent different perspectives as well as a diversity of experiences and backgrounds;
  • Have expertise that can support us in a specific moment of our organizational life.
