Governance - Everything is connected

 15 February 2021

Our governance model is based on the principle that ‘everything is connected’. It is inspired by the seven circles of the Seed of Life.

Creating a for-purpose venture in today’s legal framework resulted in a structure with three core legal entities in a hierarchical relationship. This unintended consequence has been mitigated by a flattened governance model that operates across these legal entities.

The core entities are called Houses, which are governed by a Table that consists of Chairs and Seats. The Houses and their Tables are independent yet interconnected, and collectively form the playing field, the Board. The combined Chairs and Seats at all Tables are the Leadership of EarthToday, with a maximum of 24.

The work in the Houses is executed within Circles: flexible groups of multidisciplinary participants working together on delivering key results.
