Deliberative Network Proposal

June 3, 2012 · Leave a Comment

The world needs a global dialogue.  A wide variety of economic, environmental, and political problems demand a deeper involvement from civil society.  We need to invite new ideas, and to ensure that the best ideas are discovered, refined, and acted upon.

To make this discussion effective, we need new structures for deliberative problem solving which invite involvement, learning, commitment, and effective solutions.  Both international debate summits and scientific journals provide models, but they are too slow and too exclusive.  Wikipedia represents another vision of collaboration, but is too limited for effective deliberation.

The Deliberative Network is a response to this problem, by providing a new structure of social interaction.
