“Koha” – what happens when people donate money to an idea at the end of a meeting

… and sometimes in OST, action planning just happens without it being called Action Planning. Here’s an example from the OST listserve.

“The long term project involved further development of the idea of a
community house that came out of our World Cafe on Friday.  A group met to
discuss what came next and they committed to open a bank account, begin
fundraising and to meet in a week to flesh out a more detailed todo list.
As a result of the concreteness of their invitation and willingness to work
together, the group raised $260 just by passing a hat in the closing circle,
a tangible investment of money that arose very much as a koha, which is the
Maori word for what happens when people commit money to an idea at the end
of a meeting.”
