Our lives are affected by other people all the time. Sometimes these actions and decisions have a positive impact, but sometimes they are extremely harmful.
Every person has the right to be involved in any decision that affects them. Democracy only works when systems hand over decision-making power to their users, but most systems are set-up or evolve to keep control away from users.
Real democracy isn’t something that happens at the voting booth once every few years. It happens every day. Every person should be the architect of their own destiny, and if we want justice, only we can bring it.
We empower individuals and groups to participate in the decisions that affect them, provide tools to increase access to good information and support the right structures to make those decisions.
From boardrooms to office floors, from central government to local decision makers, from aid workers to affected communities, from corporations to people, from voting to vibrant democracy
