Démocratie participative : guide des outils pour agir | think-tank.fondation-nicolas-hulot.org | Urban Life | Scoop.it

L’humanité se trouve à un moment clé de son histoire : celui de la transition, de la bifurcation vers une société qui, loin de se focaliser principalement sur l’opulence matérielle, tendrait à la recherche de l’épanouissement humain en respectant les limites de la biosphère. Réchauffement climatique, désertification, épuisement accéléré des stocks de ressources naturelles, le diagnostic de l’impasse de notre modèle de société est désormais bien établi. 

 

Cependant, au sein de nos sociétés, de nombreux citoyens souhaitent prendre leur destin en main et la démocratie participative est un des moyens idéaux pour cela. C’est pourquoi la Fondation Nicolas Hulot pour la Nature et l'Homme (FNH) s'est penchée sur la question de la refonte de notre système démocratique.

 

Considérant que l’on peut faire face aux multiples enjeux de la transition écologique en renforçant la démocratie plutôt qu’en s’orientant vers un gouvernement autoritaire, revisiter nos institutions sur la base d’un constat double est aujourd’hui incontournable. Ce constat est le suivant : d’une part la crise écologique menace la démocratie comme régime politique car pointe l’idée d’un gouvernement autoritaire excluant les citoyens des prises de décision, d’autre part la réponse à la crise démocratique répétée que traversent nos sociétés ne peut pas être pensée sans une réelle prise en compte des enjeux écologiques. Ce constat procède en partie de la difficulté pour notre système institutionnel d’anticiper et de prévenir des dégradations futures et irréversibles.

Cognitive Democracy — Crooked Timber

Networks, media, collective action, public sphere, markets, hierarchies, politics, decision-making -- Howard 

 

"In this essay, we outline a cognitive approach to democracy. Specifically, we argue that democracy has unique benefits as a form of collective problem solving in that it potentially allows people with highly diverse perspectives to come together in order collectively to solve problems. Democracy can do this better than either markets and hierarchies, because it brings these diverse perceptions into direct contact with each other, allowing forms of learning that are unlikely either through the price mechanism of markets or the hierarchical arrangements of bureaucracy. Furthermore, democracy can, by experimenting, take advantage of novel forms of collective cognition that are facilitated by new media."

How do we prep citizens for cognitive democracy? How about some cognitive hygiene? http://almanac2010.wordpress.com/2012/05/26/xtopia/
