Server-side stack for running consensus decision-making platforms

Loomio is a server-side stack for running consensus decision-making platforms. The interface is based on groups, subgroups, and discussion threads, any of which can be public or private. Members of groups and subgroups can start any number of discussion threads, and each discussion thread can host one decision at a time, using a variety of poll types. Members can change their position in a decision poll until a pre-determined closing date, and with some poll types they can also make and edit a short text statement qualifying their position.

Loomio is developed by the worker-owned Loomio Cooperative, who host the original Loomio server at Loomio.org, offering both gratis and paid plans. Loomio is part of the Enspiral network, which began with a co-working space in Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington), Aotearoa (New Zealand), and grew into a distributed network of social enterprises, developing digital products and services. Loomio is used in decision-making by the Enspiral network itself, as well as many of its member companies.
