3.5. Fostering the Emergence of a Federated and Decentralized Structure

As voluntary associations, groups, and assemblies form and self-organize, the governance system will naturally evolve towards a federated and decentralized structure. To support this process, it is important to develop clear mechanisms for collaboration, coordination, and resource-sharing among associations at different levels of the governance system, while respecting their autonomy and sovereignty. This will involve creating shared infrastructure, support systems, and decision-making processes that enable effective cooperation and mutual support among associations as they work towards their common objectives, and the stacking up and aligning of first degree associations into second, third, and higher degree associations all the way up to the Whole.
