Intention & Content Use

Here are a few key principles to be mindful of while hosting. This list will evolve as we learn together, as a global ecology of u.lab hubs, how best to support each other:

  1. Understand and align with the intention as stated in u.lab/ vision papers

  2. We understand that hub hosts may incur financial costs. When considering how to run a hub in a financially sustainable way, please try to operate on a pay-it-forward basis to the degree possible.

  3. Those who take on facilitation roles are free to use the u.lab material however they like - but they are not authorized in any way to identify themselves as official PI / Theory U / u.lab facilitators. To do the latter requires the proper training and quality gates that we have spelled out in the capacity building work of PI.

Content Reuse
