Sharing the burden

Democracy4Dinner was established by and for locals in Mt Alexander Shire and surrounds to ‘share the burden of democracy’ by working together to become more informed and engaged citizens.

We have started this journey through running events where a member of our group nominates a topic, prepare readings and a 15min presentation, and then they share what they have learned over dinner, followed by thoughtful group conversation. The topics range from policy, social, economic and environmental issues, as well as new models for democracy. Impact is explored both at a local and national level.

We’re now looking to build on these events and starting sharing some of the outcomes, as well as other ideas, through this blog.

Contributions are welcome from any member of the group or other people who simply want to contribute through writing.
