Our vision: a democratic Canberra, where citizens trust their elected representatives, hold them accountable, engage in decision making and defend what sustains the public interest
We want to make democracy in the ACT more responsive, accountable, participatory and transparent
What CAPaD is doing to strengthen democracy
We work with other community groups, the ACT government and others across Australia to improve community participation in government policy development and decision making, and to strengthen the relationship with our representatives
How to make democracy stronger
We have an Ideas and Resources Hub to help you find out more about democracy, governance and ideas that you can put into practice
Kitchen Table Conversations
Host a Kitchen Table Conversation, a community-based, self-managing conversations and help create the pre-conditions for people to desire and be able to join in participatory democracy.
