A Short History and Introduction

The Loomio project began in late 2011 when some members of the Occupy Wellington movement met up with some people at EnspiralĀ and we realized we had a common need for a better decision making tool. As non-hierarchicalĀ groups that aim to give all members a voice in the process, traditional top-down decision making wasn’t an option, but traditional consensus decision making requiring everyone to sit in a circle and talk each point through was too slow and inefficient.
