What Is An Initiative?

Hello All,

We're starting a new side to KOTR...Initiatives. These are projects that KOTR will due to support our local climbing community. There are a variety of ideas ongoing within the community, so we're starting one place to join them all.

These new forums will be a place to hash out new ideas and decide on their feasibility, cost and effectiveness. Ideas range from climbing clinics, rebolting crags, cleanup days, crag maintenance, etc. As well as supporting projects that have already been started around Korea.

The initial plan is to start a council of 10-12 people from around Korea. Council members will represent their local region, as well as a few Korean members to help represent the needs and viewpoints of our local community. The first few initiatives will be decided non-democratically by the council, to ensure projects are selected which will be completed according to existing Korean governing bodies as well as KOTR's new "Initiative Principles." This is all very new and we all know that with 300 different view points, things can get sticky. So initially, please understand that your viewpoints and suggestions are desperately needed and wanted, but may not always be "voted" on as with a M&G. Things will evolve and change as they all do.

THIS IS NOT A SOAPBOX IN WHICH TO ENFORCE OUR OWN ETHICS OR PUT DOWN THOSE OF OUR HOST NATION.

KOTR has always been a wonderful community for local climbers, but as we have grown larger, we need to recognize that we have a responsibility to give back and integrate a bit more with Korea and it's incredible family of climbers.

Our current goal is to accomplish one initiative this spring. Learn from it and complete more as we gain experience. More details will be coming in the next few days regarding...
"How to submit an initiative request."
"How to ask for KOTR's support on existing requests."
"How to help or become apart of an initiative?"
"How to become apart of the council?"

More to come soon. Please let us know your thoughts.
