“Technocrats appointed by the UN and governments are busying themselves redesigning goals, and they’re doing that with the same 20th-century elite topdown closed process.” Jamie Drummond is proposing a way to open that up.

This would be a historic first: “A poll and consultation where everyone, everywhere has an equal voice for the very first time.”
