HUB’S  Core Principles 

(based on the simplicity of Rochdale Principles)

 

  • Voluntary and open membership

Voluntary and  open to all persons able to use HUB’s services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

  • Democratic member control

HUB’s are democratic entities controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Humans serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. This democratic structure lies within G.A.I.A’s overall constitutional policies.

  • Member economic participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their co-operative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the co-operative. Members will allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing and supporting their HUB and its members and employees, and supporting other activities to improve the surrounding community approved by the membership.

  • Autonomy, independence and loyalty
    HUB’s are autonomous, self-help organisations controlled by their members, but loyal to G.A.I.A’s constitutional policies. If they enter into agreements with other organisations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their autonomy and overall loyalty to G.A.I.A’s constitutional policies.

  • Education, training and information

HUB provides education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their HUB. They inform the general public – particularly young people and opinion leaders – about the nature and benefits of their local HUB.

  • Cooperation of HUB’s within G.A.I.A

Each HUB will serve their members most effectively and strengthen the movement of G.A.I.A by working together with other HUB’s and G.A.I.A as a whole, forming a tight network of interconnected parts making up the progressive strength and flexibility of G.A.I.A.

  • Concern for community
    HUB’s will  work for the sustainable development of their local surrounding communities through policies approved by their members and supported by G.A.I.A’s constitutional policies.
