Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to ensure everyone has a voice in policy making anywhere.
It's all part of making a better world.
Policies would be consensual, bottomup, stakeholders will have automatic buy in and the policy/ies will be successful.
This is really going to help people.
Every person of consciousness and old enough to decide what s/he wants the policies to cater to. The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by those that are the marginalized today, by different man-made parameters.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Policies should be consensual among all stakeholders themselves actively engaged in contributing to the policies that effect them
That man-made distinctions are dissolved.
Every stakeholder is invested in the design or framework of the policy that s/he has contributed to.
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
I will know that I have succeeded in including everyone's voice if *I* am someday asked to contribute to a decision impacting me. So far, either my Boss, or my Elected Representive, or my Elders decide policy. Sometimes in case of all other things being equal, I lose my voice because a Man decides.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
