ALC Kgotla

At ALC, our kgotla is a practical space where students in the Democratic Challenges module can design an ideal democratic forum. In each month of the course, students and their facilitator propose and vote on options to receive a cash donation. The participants can propose any recipient for the donation they like as long as the recipient does not break the laws of the society it operates in. The initial rules of the kgotla are set by the facilitator. However, after each round (three weeks of deliberation and voting) a design meeting is held to agree on changes to the rules that determine the procedure of deliberation and voting.
