  • TALK 8 IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES BY CHANGING HOW WE GOVERN A NEW APPROACH TO GOVERNANCE Reinventing Democratic Institutions
  • TALK 9 IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES BY CHANGING HOW WE GOVERN A New Approach to Governance Complex problems, from climate change to poverty, will require collaboration to tackle. The last decade has seen remarkable advances in technology but our democratic institutions have been slow to adopt. Citizens have expertise, experience, talents, ideas and abilities that could offer new insights and solutions. A new vision of governance is emerging: one where leaders and citizens work together enabled by technology to solve societys biggest problems and create a new form of democracy.
  • TALK 10 IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES BY CHANGING HOW WE GOVERN New Approaches Brazil through participatory budgeting, more was spent on education and sanitation, and infant mortality dropped by 20% U.K. nudges are helping citizens to make healthier choices related to smoking, teenage pregnancy and more. U.S. EPA citizen science projects expose rampant air pollution and push large polluters toward more environmentally friendly practices.
  • TALK 11 IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES BY CHANGING HOW WE GOVERN THE CENTRAL HYPOTHESIS When governments and institutions use technology to open themselves and partner with citizens to make decisions, they are more legitimate and effective.
  • TALK 12 IMPROVING PEOPLES LIVES BY CHANGING HOW WE GOVERN WHY THIS APPROACH TO GOVERNANCE IS COUNTERINTUITIVE Many observers believe that opening up and increasing public engagement: Does not lead to effective decision-making or problem-solving. Doesnt work because lack of time, education, and motivation can keep people from engaging or can make their participation unhelpful. Is a sham because decisions are ultimately made by government officials, often in secret, and often in ways that are determined by party politics. Will never work because government officials are not willing to admit they need help formulating problems, fail to formulate them meaningfully, or are not ready to adopt collaborative solutions. Could even increase corruption, bias and regulatory capture.
