Yay first post, welcome to the public forum @Drb !
Here is a link to the Forum Post with the DBC Vision, Mission and Objectives as currently approved… copy/pasting V/M only here:
We envision an interdependent network of autonomous communities cultivating and nurturing a planetary paradise where everyone’s needs are met and the prosperity of Earth is endowed to future generations.
- We are inspiring planetary transformation by embodying regenerative lifestyles.
- We are generating experiential learning tools, skills, and capacities for the flourishing of personal, spiritual and environmental relationships.
- We are co-creating collective agreements for self-governance, economic exchange, resource sharing and common-land stewardship.
- We are facilitating the just redistribution of resources and power toward restoration of ecological wellness and social equity.

What I’m hearing from @rpiesveloces here is that as each Circle plans next meetings, these next steps should be taken in order to establish the team and clarify the purpose, so the team can easily prioritize initiatives by aligning them with the Circles, then the DBC’s, objectives for the year.
Each Circle can reflect on the DBC vision, mission, and objectives… hear what the members think is important, then nominate / elect a Circle Lead that can facilitate the team through defining the mission of the Circle, and objectives for the year.
In past years we have focused on Funding/Admin with a goal to have clear processes, on Land Stewardship to develop the Stages… this year the Regenerative Enterprise has been stepping into the spotlight… however! All Circles are interdependent in this autonomous network …
What to know from me, is that stepping into a Circle, taking on a Role, clarifying the purpose and meeting regularly to review, discuss and approve/prioritize proposals etc. is how you move through the Stages of Stewardship - by taking on stewardship of our processes you are exercising your right to govern, bringing your voice and perspective to the whole, and gaining experience, reputation, credibility, and trust over time.
