You are in the right, our goal is: "...to support the creation,
collection and distribution of Open Content in a not-for-profit way in
order to support education and the equal opportunity of access to

If the foundation took a decision that we do not share (respecting our
goal), we could refuse it following point 2,1 or must accept it
following point 2.2?

The Bylaws should be not ambiguous. I suggest to define better the
word "share" in point 2.2 adding another sentence more careful.
