Future sensitive democracy

The goal of the PALO project is to strengthen the role of democracy in Finland. Our vision is a future sensitive democracy, where the practices of citizen participation are more effective and the public decision-making process support long-term decision-making.

We want to renew decision-making practices within our current representative democratic system, but we also want to develop innovative practices of citizen participation that could be used in as many contexts as possible, for example in conjunction of elections and referendums and in resolving conflicts of land use planning.
