Blockade Governance: Consent and consensus

We also heard a lot of people’s experiences, both good and bad. Especially when it comes to consent there is a lot that we can practice. During the webinar we practiced consent but you can continue that practice at home and at work by ensuring that you have free, prior and informed consent when making a decision that has impacts for others. And if you’re in doubt about who it might impact, ask!

During the session we also recommended people check out Seeds for Change’s youtube channel for their videos on consensus decision making. There are also really great resources in The Commons: Social Change Library on consensus.

You can go back over the slides which has the definitions of the medical informed consent and the UN’s free, prior and informed consent which is now integral to First Nations self-determination.
