This is also where you can also find information on OuiShare's funding sources.
In accordance with our governance principle of Autonomy of Communities and Projects, OuiShare does not have one unified financial management and budget planning. Each local OuiShare entity manages its finances independently and contributes to one collective funding pot to finance operations and infrastructure that all communities share, regardless of location. This money that we put in a collective funding pot is part of the "global commons".
In Ouishare, part of our funds are spent through a collaborative funding process.
In OuiShare we often refer to "the commons", both locally and globally. What we mean by that is all the knowledge assets, operations, infrastructure and things such as our brand, which all our communities share both the benefit and the responsibility to maintain. This includes a large amount of work that is unfunded and remains volunteer work, as well as a small proportion that is funded.
