About Us

Hello

We are a non profit democracy organisation (DDNZ.org) that is looking to establish real democracy in New Zealand so that the thoughts of citizens directly count in communities, regions and all the way up to National level by using referenda and citizens assembly practices.

All views matter, we are not about any particular agenda, interest or group, just a fair system for everyone to vote on all issues.. instead of politicians controlling absolutely everything.

Our ultimate objective is to remove the entire political layer and have all public decisions made by the public + expert input... No politicians....

The definition of democracy is literally "Rule of the people".

Why does New Zealand matter if you aren't a New Zealander?

New Zealand is a small country and relatively easy to turn towards true democratic principles. Other bigger countries have much more in the way of political challenge to achieve this. If we can make it happen in New Zealand, that success can flow to other countries.
