SEOC Project

The Sociocracy Empowering Organizational Capacity (SEOC) project uses adult education to professionalize staff and trainers and enable them to support the activity of Citizen Initiative Groups active throughout Europe, working for sustainable grassroots solutions for social, economical and environmental challenges.
Adult learners will be training in Sociocracy 3.0 (S3) and use it to establish effective governance in organizations, companies, institutions and informal initiative groups inside and outside of the partnership.
The SEOC Project is a close collaboration between Asociatia Romania in Transitie (the Romanian Transition Towns mouvemnt), Red Iberica de Ecoaldeas (the Iberian Ecovillage Network), Rede Italiana de Ecovillagi (the Italian Ecovillage Network) and Universitatea de Vest Timisoara (Timisoara West University from Romania).
The partners of the SEOC project are creating together a set of on-line learning resources which will be combined with the existing and emerging learning resources openly available on sociocracy30.org. These materials will enable remote learning and will be integrated in a series of multiplier events consisting of Sociocrcy 3.0 introduction workshops, on-line peer learning groups and a Trainer of Trainers program debuting with an in-house training for the partner organizations (a limited number of participants outside of the partnership are welcome but will not benefit from the project funding).
A key aspect of the SEOC project is the Research Study lead by Timisoara West University.Conducted on the Partners as well as other organizations implementing S3 it will asses the results as well as the dynamics of implementation and the change process involved.
The four partner organisations were granted €92.163,00 under ERASMUS+ to implement the project over a two-year period, from October 2015 to October 2017.
