Democracy: fun for the whole family with Megan Girdler and Max Hardy

In May, Future Boutique launched the 12-month Power to the People Study to explore the past, present and future of Democracy. Join Megan Girdler and Max Hardy to learn more about the study and how to get involved.

The possible future of Democracy is a subject that captured the interests of researchers, media and community in recent years. Power to the People aims to explore these possible futures in collaboration with everyday people from a variety of different backgrounds and perspectives. It will employ public participation and citizen science methods to produce a people-powered exploration of Democracy.

Power to the People was launched during Melbourne Knowledge Week 2019. The launch event, an expo, was attended by over 100 families throughout the day. Participants made ‘activism’ badges, completed referendums, put puzzles together, and voted online about ‘what Democracy means to them’ and ‘issues they really care about’. Event partners were NewVote, the Centre for Democracy,IAP2A and the Good Karma Effect; and the generous event sponsor was Max Hardy Consulting.
