What is Loomio?

Loomio is a user-friendly web app that works on computers, smartphones, and tablets. Fast, inclusive, and effective decisions can be your new normal.

Loomio is different from polling, surveys, or social networking. Every feature helps your group discuss, decide, and move forward. It enables a constructive deliberation process, helping groups work together to synthesize better solutions that work for everyone.

  1. Gather. Bring together the right people and the right information. Accessible, easy to use, customisable, with fine-grained options for privacy and security.

  2. Discuss. Have clear, on-topic conversations. Stay on track, surface the right information, and filter the noise. It’s a dedicated space for constructive collaboration.

  3. Propose. Visual summaries make it easy to quickly understand where everyone stands, and why. If you agree, find out fast. Or hone directly in on the crux of the issue and start building shared understanding.

  4. Decide & Act. Achieve a clear outcome for every proposal, within the timeframe you set. Everyone gets notified of the results, so you can move forward and take action together.

Loomio is open source software, built by a worker-owned cooperative social enterprise. We believe that more groups practicing effective, inclusive decision-making can change organisational dynamics at a global scale. Loomio exists to make it easy for anyone, anywhere, to participate in decisions that affect their lives.

Loomio is an incredible 21st century oriented tool for managing complex organizations of individuals. Instead of tyranny of the majority, Loomio shoots for mutual understanding among diverse members. Seems to compliment trello.

Good show!
