This is a living catalogue hundreds of innovative practices, ideas, experiments, organizations, people, and other resources useful for building wiser democracies that work for all. "Wiser democracies" are systems of politics and governance, of citizenship and activism, which creatively engage more of our human capacities — not only to better address today's pressing social and environmental problems, but to help us build more desirable futures for ourselves and all the generations after us.
A few randomly chosen resources

Political labels like "Left" and "Right" obscure more significant differences like those in both liberal and conservative camps who advocate "Order" (centralization) or "Freedom" (decentralization).Citizens Juries ()
Citizens juries involve a randomly selected and demographically representative panel of citizens meeting for four or five days to carefully examine an issue of public significance, hearing from a variety of expert witnesses and presenting their recommendations to the public.
