Democracy Commons Project
= "The DCP aims to provide resources for the global knowledge commons to support the understanding, design and articulation of efforts at Democracy for the Commons".
A project of the Australian Futures Lab.
"The Democracy Commons Project (DCP) is a platform to publish resources, articles, videos, collaborative networks, to act as a catalyst in stimulating the social innovation of new democratic forms and projects.
We live in a time where a new generation of political activist call for participatory democracy, and where a new generation of technologies potentiate innovative modes of political participation.
Equally however, we live at a time when political oligarchies straddle global political systems. A time when a trans national capitalist class have unprecedented influence on so-called democratic processes.
Clearly it is time for a ‘mindful’ uprising! Clearly it is time for political transformation!"
