5. ON FINANCING

Interpretation of the 22 appraisals and 9 comments.

Almost unanimously (with a few that “half agree”), there was agreement that the Alliance should continue with the support as much of the FPH as of other financing sources.

Moving in this direction, the projects of each group or class of groups should find diversified sources of financing. One comment stressed the urgent need to give the necessary means to a workgroup whose exclusive responsibility would be to raise funds in direct collaboration with the facilitators of the groups.

The majority also agreed (with some opposition) that the FPH’s “Call for Initiatives” for the democratization of the budget is an example of bravery, challenge, and collective construction. However, there were also some who think that this Call should be oriented according to the activities and objectives of the Alliance. There was also mention of the need that the selection of projects should also be done democratically by a jury of Allies.

On the other hand, the great majority also argued that the FPH should contribute specifically to the development of the Alliance as a collective project to help it begin to achieve its autonomy, and for which it is more difficult to find other financial sources, and in particular: for reflection on our common future, for a cross-cutting reading of the Proposal Papers, for training in using the Internet, training of facilitators, and experiments in forms of collective governance. Moving in this direction, one comment underscored that what should be financed above all are innovations in terms of collective organization (more than methods or meetings) and the question was raised as to who, today, would finance an international network such as the Alliance, which, at the present moment, also has to reinvent its future?
