Hello, and welcome!
More than sixty years after Independence,
we are unable to assure millions of our citizens access to the most basic amenities, and reasonable hope for a better
economic future. There are systematic political, administrative and socio-economic reasons for this failure, and we must recognise
them, and work to overcome them.
Traditional, representative democracy is simply too slow to respond to today's challenges; what we need instead a participatory
alternative that is focused on solving public problems.
We must work together - in debating new ideas, technology development, planning, media, public
administration, and many other areas - to build this new democracy, so that it is not only a form of government for
the people and of the people, but also by the people.
I invite you to join me in this collaboration.
