What is a Block?

A block is not decided by an individual alone if a particular concern is blocking Consensus; it is determined in cooperation with the whole group. The group determines a concern's legitimacy. 



If the allotted agenda time has been spent trying to achieve Consensus, and unresolved legitimate concerns remain, the Proposal may be considered blocked, or not able to be adopted at that Meeting.

To prevent such an issue from hindering your group's progress please learn about N Street Consensus and how they have addressed unnecessary blocking from happening.
