Note! The Working Group Manifesto is a live document, as the working group evolves (e.g. people join the working group) this document should be updated to reflect these changes. This is important so that there is an updated single source of truth for onboarding new working group members.

(The working group lead is expected to keep the document up to date.)


Eduardo and Tamara are the Stewards of this Working Group.

Communitas Goals

The intention of this Working Group is to nurture, grow and guide the TEC community. The points of focus are new member orientation, current member community building, and organizational design: namely, guiding folks into the TEC and helping folks navigate the TEC from the inside.

Areas to receive attention and care include:

  • Orientation - making the TEC an inviting space for newcomers and assisting them in finding direction

  • Onboarding - helping fledging TEC members advance their roles

  • Integration and facilitation of the TEC community

  • Organizational design - information pathways, different ways of working together, inclusion, accessibility etc.

Areas also on the Communitas WG radar include:

  • TE Scouts - encourage this project that brings like-minded DAO communities together

  • TEC Lounge - promoting a space for TEC members to engage casually, ask questions candidly, relax and explore without constraints or expectations

  • TEC Projects - support members who are developing projects for TEC funding

  • TEC Services - support services that bridge TEC with nested communities

Success vs. Failure
