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
The Center for Visionary Leadership ()
This values-based, non-partisan, non-denominational organization is helping an expanding network of spiritually-oriented voters and social innovators to successfully apply spiritual principles to tough social problems and effective citizenship.Approval voting ()
Voters vote for as many candidates as they wish. The candidate with the most votes wins. The winner is therefore approved of -- at least to some extent -- by a significant majority of voters.Citizen Initiative Review ()
For each ballot initiative, a panel of randomly-selected and demographically-balanced voters is brought together for several days to fairly evaluate it. They hear directly from campaigns for and against the measure, and from policy experts. Their vote, statements for and against, and consensus statements as a whole, are included in the official voters' pamphlet.
