This project is intended to offer a resource to help citizens think through the consequences of political policy , democratic decisions and decision making, or, in the words of Hannah Arendt, to “ think what it is we do”.
Our intention is modest; to provide space for occasional thought pieces about the long term consequences of a variety of New Zealand election policies and issues that matter for the nation’s youngest citizens and future generations.
We will include thoughts from 'professional experts' , community advocates and young, emerging social scientists.
We hope it makes a small, positive difference for our collective, democratic future
