As a world famous local civilization living in a democracy, we should believe than our chosen government will represent the majority view of it's population. Until recently, this has been something we have been invited to participate in only every fours years, during the local elections.
A new and far more efficient gesture is to invite the population to continue their participation in local government decisions throughout the whole period of governance.
Joining together all the civic groups and local neighbourhood associations into a island peoples movement, would not only give local authorities a bigger opportunity to tap into the great wealth of information from their consituents, it would also bind the population in a positive and sustainable direction. By working hand in hand with the local administration, this growing peoples presence can be of real value in finding ways to improve our own environmental stability. It can also mean being in a position to transmit this information to all parts of the world.
