Gena Van Camp & Bob Glotzbach
5082 Warm Springs Rd., Glen Ellen, CA 95442 - USA
Gena is an anthropologist and Bob a sociologist. We have been bioregionalists,
decentralists and community activists for almost two decades in
programs and projects that involve citizens in their local communities.
Through Regeneration Resources we work to build community consciousness
and to help small towns establish participation in communications,
self-governance, local economies, etc. We have sponsored exhibits
on recycling, local history and renewable energies. We are writing
a book, The Elements of Real Community, describing a systems
approach to citizen participation in small towns and neighborhoods.
We want to network with community activists
who are active in their own communities. We are looking for examples
of places with high levels of citizen participation.

the task by themselves.
I want to work with a team bringing
Wisdom Councils and consensus councils to the SF Bay Area, particularly
Oakland. I've considered running for office using Wisdom Councils
as centerpiece of my campaign. I'm exploring how the large union
where I'm on staff might engage rank-and-file in randomly selected
Principal Consultant, Facilitating Creative Collaboration
Sebastopol, CA 95472 - USA
I consult with businesses, local governments, non-profits, and community
groups. My background includes organization development, human systems,
transformative education, and social work. I have been greatly inspired
by Jim Rough's Dynamic Facilitation, and my passion is facilitating
emergent processes where the energy of diversity becomes a resource
As editor of The Tao of Democracy,
my commitment is to expanding our cultural imagination about the
possibilities inherent in conflict. The social potential shown by
the "Canadian Experiment"
is ever present, emerging whenever appropriate circumstances are
provided… I seek to re-create this life-affirming drama in
a variety of settings.
