I am currently cofounder of the website www.grassrootsaltaiinternationalalliance.org

Tell us about a meaningful experience you have had with self-organizing and/or ways you are engaging with new forms of leadership and organization.: I am currently working with a woman from Novosibirsk and a UN member from Geneva to have a Leadership Forum in November 2010 I have been working with the Altai people around cultural exchanges, landrights and summer youth camp since 2005 and look forward to continuing this work.

When you think about leadership in a self-organizing world, what questions are cooking you? What do you hope to learn at this gathering?: I am hoping to make connections for the NOV Forum and to learn more about the other efforts that are happening globally as well as the Open Space Model.
