Welcome

The interim International Organization for a Participatory Society (IOPS) was launched in 2012 with the aim of winning a better world.

IOPS is, currently, in an interim stage, leading up to a founding convention when the membership will determine the organization's definition in more detail.

Please watch our introductory video, scroll through our slideshow and learn more About IOPS.

Mission

IOPS seeks to win a new participatory society based on solidarity, equity/justice, diversity, self-management, and ecological stewardship, through:

  • flexibly exploring and adovcating long term vision
  • planting the seeds of the future in the present
  • empowering and improving the lives of its members
  • organising in an internally classless and self-managing way
  • winning changes in society that improve the lives of people in the present

Vision

IOPS flexibly explores and organises around a broad vision of a future society. IOPS Vision centrally addresses:

  • Economics
  • Politics
  • Culture/Race
  • Kinship/Gender
  • Ecology
  • International Relations

Read the IOPS Vision Statement

Structure

In order to give every member a proportional say in the decisions that affect them (self-management), IOPS is organised around a bottom-up structure, based on a federation of interconnected local, regional and national branches.

Local chapters have control over decisions that only affect them and proportional say in regional, national and international issues.

Read the IOPS Structure and Programme Statement.

Membership

Currently, IOPS is in a creation stage. By joining now, you become an interim member. A convention, or series of conventions, will be planned, for membership to determine the organization's definition in more detail.

IOPS is open for anyone wishing to join who shares the commitments in the organizational description and agrees to actively participate in the life of the organization. If you have any questions before joining, please see:
