In Still Green how we deal with each other is particularly important. We expect members to support the following values and principles on which our rules and ways of working are based.
Respect for each other – including goodwill and trust towards one another, treating each other with consideration as equals, and accepting each other as we are.
Personal responsibility – with everyone contributing, albeit in different ways at different times, according to our gifts and experience.
Fostering good relationships – seeking ways to be considerately truthful, to listen hard and communicate gently.
Decision-making – which is transparent and clear but also allows for proper consultation and participation by members. With difficult issues we need to seek creative solutions and the common ground, recognising that we look to build a community where we can live together as good neighbours.
