Freedom & Democracy at Work
Worldblu is a movement of organizations putting organizational democracy in the center of their daily work. Organizational democracy is a system of organization that is based on love, trust and freedom, instead of fear and control. It's a way of designing organizations to amplify the possibilities of human potential — and the organization as a whole. The concept of democracy comes from the Greek words "demos" and "kratein" which mean "the people rule".
So the core of organizational democracy and political democracy is the same — allowing people to self-govern and determine their own destiny. What is different is the context — one is in the political arena, the other is in the realm of organizations.
