  • Promulgate a new theory and vocabulary for open, participatory and “peer progressive” governance;
  • Define a new curriculum for teaching participatory governance and problem solving to the next generation of public servants and civic innovators;
  • Create methods with which to gauge the effectiveness of open and collaborative governance practices;
  • Design a research and action agenda to discover and apply new designs for our institutions of governance.
