HOW PEF ORGANISING WORKS

  1. The PEF organizing team is a group of volunteers who are doing what we can, with what we have and what we can mobilize, wherever we are.
  1. People volunteer for tasks based on skills, talents, resources, experiences expertise they have, can access or mobilize through their networks.
  1. Volunteers work independently, collectively and collaboratively to complete the tasks which we volunteer for, responsibly and respectfully.
  1. Volunteers take individual and personal responsibility for completing the tasks for which we volunteer. We are committed to accomplishing goals.
  1. Volunteers are responsible and accountable to the other volunteers to complete whatever we volunteer to do. We do not pass the ‘junk status’ buck.
  1. WE DO NOT TALK BIG, ACT BIG, AND FAIL TO DELIVER. THIS IS UNHELPFUL, COUNTERPRODUCTIVE AND UNACCEPTABLE.
  1. We meet up wherever and whenever we can, especially where there is access free workspace and Wi-Fi in order to be resourceful and minimize costs.
  1. We also meet at HABESHA CAFÉ IN GLENWOOD, CITYZEN CAFÉ IN MORNINGSIDE, and THE CENTRE FOR FINE ART AND DESIGN IN THE CITY.
  1. FREE WORKSPACE AND WIFI is available at the KNZSA GALLERY ON BULWER ROAD IN GLENWOOD for teams to meet and work.
  1. Several venues to host PEF events have been secured at DUT and around DURBAN. PEF related events can be co-organized by people, organisations, and communities in other venues as well.
  1. We want to keep the PEF organising process open, collaborative, informal, relaxed, friendly, happy, creative, collaborative and fun.
  1. BUT WE DO NOT DO WHATEVER WE WANT WITHOUT ENGAGEMENT WITH AT LEAST NISHA, PATRICK OR DESMOND AS PEF INITIATORS.
  1. All actions, events, work, processes, interactions under the banner of PEF adhere to a Code of Conduct adapted from the World Social Forum. ATATCHED.
  1. No funding has been received to date and all activities have been self-funded by the volunteers.
  1. An introduction/profile summary to the PEF has been developed. ATTACHED. This is a draft and will continuously evolve as the PEF evolves. It is not perfect. The process is not perfect. We aim to do the best we can with what we have and can mobilize, wherever we are. We do this for the greater collective good and to show that the power of the people is greater than the people in power.
  1. We hope you will join us, contribute, collaborate and co-create in whatever way you can, wherever you are, whether on the ground or online or both.
