Can we reset democracy?

Policymakr will reset the treatment and perception of politics on the Internet. We want to restore confidence in a model that has been partly broken by the onset of immediate, abundant and unverifiable information.

We will use the tools of the 2020s to restore a modern, functional system for planning humankind’s long-term future.

By reconnecting Citizens and Policy Makers, our Democracy—the best system of government known to man—will be consolidated.

Project-centered

Projects are at the core of Policymakr. Its governance structure, rules and economic model are designed from the ground up to provide an online area for political debate that citizens can trust. The ones listed here as just examples. If you join, you’ll be able to suggest your own projects, and work on them with others.

We share regular, high-quality news. It’s available here in the News section, on Policymakr’s Facebook page, or you can subscribe to updates: editorials, news about our progress, and guest posts. You’re welcome to send in a contribution.

How Policymakr works

There will be three categories of profiles on Policymakr: Citizens, Policy Makers and Experts, working together on Projects aimed at resolving a policy issue. No one will be left out. Members will work together to find the best solution to a problem: one that everyone accepts, because everyone has been listened to, and one that will work in practice. Read more about how Policymakr will be structured and why it’ll be different to anything that exists online now, have a look at the FAQ, and find out which membership category fits you below.

Eight key words that define Policymakr

Nonprofit

The purpose of Policymakr is to serve the public and the general interest, globally, in the long term. It is not to make money or to enrich its founders.​

Ad-free

There will never be a single ad on Policymakr. The site will run paid accounts and will be exclusively funded by donations, and member subscriptions.

Project-focused

The site’s primary content will be projects curated by members, with a view to drafting and validating a robust, long-term solution to a policy issue.

Independent

No affiliation with a party, lobby interest, social class, or religion. Membership open to all, regardless of colour, class, creed, gender, or orientation.

Fact-based

Work on projects carried out by members shall not involve an exchange of unsubstantiated opinion, but only mobilization of verifiable facts.​

Consensual

All shall show courtesy, approach their work constructively, with an open mind, and with respect for the approaches and proposals of others.

No feed

There will be no news feed of any kind available on Policymakr, and sharing of the content of Policymakr’s Projects on social networks will be discouraged.

Conflict-free

We aim to solve problems through amicable, non-partisan study of all relevant facts: partisan political opinions have no place in this process.
