HAHA!!! No, the Humour and Hilarity Advancement Academy is a serious project!
The objectives of HAHA are:
HAHA is a registered non-profit association in Estonia since 2018: Mittetulundusühing HAHA Academy, registration number 80544719.
HAHA Academy is organising under the principles of heterarchy, "a flexible structure made up of interdependent units, and the relationships between those units are characterized by multiple intricate linkages that create circular paths rather than hierarchical ones."
HAHA Academy uses the collaborative decision making tool Loomio for its decision making process between members.
We work by consent: that way a hard no is respected as a hard no, always. When conflicts arise we put our giraffe ears on to participate in 'Non-violent communication', or spend time on self-inquiry using 'The Way'. When shit really hits the fan we seek out a person skilled in the art of mediation.
Membership in the league of 1000 HAHAs is €5 a month. Click here to become a member.
Members of the league of 1000 HAHAs meet both online through Loomio and chat groups, and offline in annual meetings in Exarcheia, Greece.

The Humour and Hilarity Advancement Academy was the title of a dystopian short story Edurne (co-founder of HAHA) wrote in her first year of teaching back in 2008. After meeting Mayel (and marrying online), bit by bit they've been downloading the idea of HAHA from the æthers.
