Validating Council

Some decisions transcend the CC’s coordination role. As these decisions will often need to be validated quickly, it will not be possible to mobilise the entire DiEM25 membership to vote within a tight deadline. For this purpose, a Validating Council comprised of 100 DiEM25 members selected by sortition from a pool of self-nominated candidates is instituted. To learn more about DiEM25’s Validating Council (VC), please visit the movement’s Organising Principles.

The following people form our current Validating Council:
