Conseil de Validation

Certaines décisions dépassent le cadre des missions du Collectif de Coordination. Il arrive souvent que ces décisions doivent être validées rapidement, et qu'il ne soit pas possible de mobiliser l'intégralité des membres de DiEM25 pour organiser un vote dans un délai serré. C'est pour cette raison qu'un Conseil de Validation est institué. Il est composé de 100 membres de DiEM25 tirés au sort parmi l'ensemble des membres du mouvement. Pour en savoir plus à propos du Conseil de Validation de DiEM25 (VC), n'hésitez pas à consulter les Principes Organisateurs du mouvement.

According to the new Organising Principles, any DiEM25 member with voting rights (i.e. verified identity, up-to-date membership fee) can be randomly picked for the Validating Council at any time. You do not need to apply anymore.

Viva Diem25 with a ingenious proposal on the Ukraine war. Makes me proud.
Gea Mulder Portugal Dear Diem25 people, My name is Gea Mulder. Originally I come from Holland, but have been living in Portugal for 20 years now. I am 63 years old.

As an administrator I have been working in a Southafrican political refugee camp in the '80s, at the university in Holland in the '90s and running a campsite with my husband in Portugal the last 20 years. I want the world not only to move the focus from money to nature, but continue this path to synergy with nature in which every person takes his responsibility and is learnt how to do that.

Roald Neuteboom Pays-Bas Hello, I am Roald, an engaged citizen trying to make the the world a better happier place. As soon as I heard what DiEM25 was about I knew that I align with its values and goals. I hope you will all join me in this mission. Carpe DiEM!

Viktorija Petrena Slovénie I'm an economist, working for an IT firm which provides a financial SW. I can see in real time what kind of money is moved around the globe only to make more of it but not doing any good for the masses or the environment, so I'd like to do something for the greater good.

Thomas Psaltou Allemagne I was born in Greece and grew up in Germany. Early in my youth I had to learn what exclusion and racism means for someone who grows up as a migrant in a country that is not his home country. With this knowledge in my heart I grew up and searched for recognition. I found it in wonderful people in Germany who stand against racism and exclusion. And since then DiEM 25 has been a whole movement. It will be a pleasure for me to be part of it. Übersetzt mit DeepL https://www.deepl.com/app/?utm_medium=android-share
