How to participate in the governance of the Aave DAO?

Any AAVE and stkAAVE holders can participate in the Aave DAO governance by voting on Aave Improvement Proposals (AIPs). The governance forum is where anyone can make a proposal and then receive feedback and participate in discussion. Once the proposal receives enough community support, there will be a community vote where the proposal is either accepted/rejected.

The role of the Aave “Genesis Team” is to build the changes that the community votes on and directs.
