Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
A society where citizens have inputs in government policies that affect their lives.
It's all part of making a better world.
An inclusive governance where people oriented policies are made.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by youth
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Education of the citizens on the policies that are to be made.
Calling for opinions/inputs by the citizens.
Publicly displaying analysis of the inputs, properly disaggregated, and adopting the options from the most citizens, with considerations of the different segments of the society.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Legal frameworks are established that mandates that this happens before any policy comes into place, as well as, providing a platform for citizens to use and educating them on how to use it.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
