Thank you for subscribing to Enlivening Edge.
Am I correct in thinking you are the mayor of Frome and the author of Flatpack Democracy?
If that is the case, I would be really interested in hearing about your interest in TEAL and experience with governance.
What inspires you about Enlivening Edge?
Is there any way we could support your work?

Thanks for this
You think right (though Mayors only last a year and I have now moved on from that post!)
I joined because I felt there might be interesting sharing to benefit from and contribute to......
At the lowest levels of ‘democracy’ we are struggling to find ways to develop ways in which volunteer councils with ever increasing responsibility, operating in communities with less and less resources outside of themselves, can survive and thrive....
Can you support our work? I have no idea yet as I don’t really know what you think Enlivening Edge might offer!

Thank you for this feedback.
The way we could possibly help would be through providing a platform like Enlivening Edge, connect you to similar initiatives and people and together keep leaning into possibilities, identify obstacles and co-create enabling structures where the future can emerge. The 3 breakthroughs of wholeness, self-management and evolutionary purpose and how to support their evolution could be guiding the conversation.
Just a few thoughts.
What if anything inspires you about TEAL?

I’m going to copy this string of emails to Indie-Town.uk who are already in the process of doing some of what you describe..... they might be interested in seeing what you are up to and planning.... and you might have thoughts on how things do or don’t overlap.
I’ll have a think about your possible inputs and come back later
