Black group: results of the first iteration
We want a kind of participatory, decentralising and inclusive politics that engages people, bridges differences, and solves problems together. Rapid changes render our political institutions dysfunctional.
Black group: results of the second iteration
We need a way to humanize the state that breaks apart existing power structure and enables inclusive democratic participation through a subsidiarity structure that encourages local engagement.
This structure needs to involve everybody living in the jurisdiction, beginning with giving everyone a right to vote as a universal international standard, and ensuring legally enforceable access to participation at different levels by disadvantaged persons like wheelchair users.
For this we must elaborate further on
• Mobilizing for the right to vote for everyone
• Bringing democracy into the economy
• Ensuring access to democracy
• Exploring the practice of commoning
Black group: results of third iteration and final statement
We are creating a wiki to collect best practices of participatory, decentralized and more inclusive political processes and institutions. This is to evolve into a charter to empower citizens in a way that is universally and equally accessible.
