Make democracy more democratic

Inspired by

The Peoples Charter 2019 has been inspired by many groups seeking peaceful democratic reform, including

All Hands On Our films show radical democracy in action. They show that we citizens deliver excellent outcomes on even the most complex political issues. And they show how we citizens are transformed in the process.

Alternative UK We are a political platform, not a political party.
Our purpose is to catalyse a new politics that goes far beyond our current reality. We focus on engagement more than elections, on values over ideology, on futures that include, not exclude.

Citizens Assemblies UK Citizens Assembly research and pilot projects

Compass We are building a Good Society; one that is much more equal, sustainable and democratic than the society we are living in now

Electoral Reform Society a political pressure group which promotes electoral reform … seeking to replace the first-past-the-post voting system with one of proportional representation, advocating the single transferable vote.

EmpathyTent The political arena and media reporting is combative, polarising and divisive. Politicians spend too much time fighting to defeat each other, so very little of their energy is devoted to resolving differences. This fuels anger, fear, cynicism, and disconnection in politics. This threatens the well being of us all. The one thing many of us agree on however: THIS IS A PROBLEM !

Extinction Rebellion – Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

FlatPack Democracy – A DIY Guide to Creating Independent Politics. How to make politics relevant, effective and fun.

ICUK Independent Constitutionalists UK. Our current 5-year, first-past-the-post, winner-takes-all, electoral democracy must be replaced by participative-representative democracy.

The Institute for Government is the leading think tank working to make government more effective. We provide rigorous research and analysis, topical commentary and public events to explore the key challenges facing government. We offer a space for discussion and fresh thinking to help senior politicians and civil servants think differently and bring about change.

Involve We believe that people should be at the heart of decision making

Make Votes Matter a political pressure group which campaigns for proportional representation.

More United … building a fair and thriving country through cross-party working that gives a voice to the people who want to move Britain forward.

openDemocracy Through reporting and analysis of social and political issues, we seek to educate citizens to challenge power and encourage democratic debate across the world.

Real Democracy Movement The RDM seeks to end the domination of our society and the political system by corporate and financial power. We are for a democratic revolution to build a new political system that works for the 99% and puts real power into the hands of the people.

Simpol – the Simultaneous Policy – combines a way to understand global problems, a new approach to politics, and an electoral strategy that brings them together.

Something New We believe that government should serve the people, and that “the state”, so often derided, is simply the way that citizens work together to enhance the public good. Something New has adopted the OpenPolitics Manifesto, an independent non-partisan manifesto that absolutely anyone can contribute to. [A great initiative that’s either stalled or crashed, but an inspiration anyway].

Unlock Democracy We believe politics must work for everyone because currently the rules of democracy aren’t fair.
