Better Democracy – Citizens Foundation

So it’s a new kind of tool, both in
direct democracy but also in deliberative democracy. We had an idea from a 9 year old girl in Reykjavík
who wanted schools to go out for visit to companies. It starts with small ideas and then builds on that. If people realize that they
put their investment into trying to make a difference it will only grow. If children are even participating it must give them an idea, a newfound trust in the
local government that they can actually have something to say in their community.
