Loomio is an online tool for collaborative decision-making, built by a team of technologists, activists and social entrepreneurs in New Zealand.
Loomio emerged from the need for a scalable way to make inclusive group decisions during the Occupy movement in 2011.
We experienced the transformative potential of collaborative decision-making, as well as its severe limitations: if people have to be in the same place at the same time to participate, it can never scale.
We set out to build a solution to this problem: using the Internet to give people an easy way to make good decisions together, wherever they are.
It’s called Loomio, like a loom for weaving diverse perspectives together :)
Now more than 75,000 people have made more than 25,000 decisions on Loomio.
