A Project Supported by the NED Foundation

We support projects that build human potential, implement restorative practices and sustain our planet.

Project Overview

Project Grant Year: 

In 2020 NED supported the Canberra Alliance for Participatory Democracy to invigorate engagement in democratic participation. This involved further developing and improving their website to provide resources, ideas and information. While the focus is on the Australian Capital Territory this site is useful for anyone interested in Participatory Democracy.

In their application Secretary, Peter Tait, wrote, “Our fear that the current socio-political arrangements are leading to an impoverished humanity and potentially the collapse of human civilisation, this motivates us to improve our democratic system so that governments deliver for the benefit of all people, not just the 1 percent.”
