SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Let’s change how politics Looks, Acts, Thinks, Sounds and Works

Politics is not working in this country!  

Our politicians think that they are listening to and representing the views of the people. The people think differently: In recent research, 86% of those polled believed that Australian politics was only beneficial to the politicians and was based on knee-jerk reactions. Barely one in four thought Australian politics was trustworthy, balanced or fair. Very few (<17%) believe that our political processes deliver positive outcomes, at least most of the time.  

8 in 10 Australians think it’s time to change politics.

Jeremy,

The New Democracy Foundation does a lot of work in this area.

Luca Belgiorno-Nettis (the founder of nDF) and Kyle Redman have recently published a book you may enjoy "The A, B & C of Democracy (Cats in the sack)". The book is an easy read and gives a lot of background and detail on citizens assemblies.
