Discrete government projects like this pop up from time to time (park & ride) & I’m not sure this decision process is good enough to trust (what will happen to these ideas?). So I’d like to use some of the money to develop a way to hear people’s voices .. not just the loud, the well connected, or those with something to gain .. a trusted way for everyone to be heard. Literally select people at random to serve (maybe for a year), & pay for their life expertise. Create design teams to work on ‘popular’ programmes that tie in with people’s interest. Communicate progress. Campaign for what we need.
Maybe it gets lots of small things done that matter to just a few people, but in sum adds up to a responsive system people support & feel part of. It’s cultural, because it would bring us together because it would feel like a future is possible.
