Developing cutting-edge policy using Loomio

Case Study | Loomio enabled the Green Party of West Australia’s wide-reaching membership to congregate, collaborate, and agree on policies quickly and efficiently together. The 2019 federal election in Australia was one Kim Smith will never forget. She was up at two in the morning, putting up signs around polling booths and spent the next 24 hours in a flurry of campaign management tasks for the Green Party’s candidate. When the news came a month later that Jordon Steele-John had won the senate seat, Kim says it was one of her proudest moments with the Greens.

We're all Humans Here

Case Study | The Refugee Buddy Project Hastings, Rother & Weladen (TRBP) is celebrating universal humanity by welcoming and supporting newly arriving refugees to their UK town and using Loomio to organize their rapidly growing group.

Soon after, they arrived as refugees in Scotland to a chorus of bagpipers wearing kilts.

How are you adapting? Resources & events to help

It’s been some months now since COVID-19 has completely changed the way we work, engage, and interact.

Our friends from the Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI), a nonprofit quantifying each country’s human rights performance, has been able to continue their important work by using Loomio to connect their global network of experts, volunteers, and academics.

How a revolutionary idea was implemented with ease

Case study | As humans embark deeper into the digital age, it is increasingly vital for companies to embrace communication tools, apps, and platforms. Behind almost every successful venture there is a team of software experts. That’s why companies like Eryx are vital to today’s market.

Active plan pricing - Simple, fair, inclusive

If you have been following Loomio for a while, you will have noticed we periodically review our pricing. I’m delighted to announce our latest pricing focusing on simplicity, fairness and inclusion. Many customers have told us they want to invite more people into discussion and decision making, but don’t want to pay for people who are not actively participating. They want to scale up for key events like a general meeting and then scale back down after, and only pay for people actively using Loomio.
