Time, Direct Governance is About Time

One of the systemic barriers to everyone having the ability to participate in governance, especially young people most impacted by inequity and poor people, is the time it takes to just survive and/or meet non-community created expectations.

Co governance takes time, but if people are forced to work multiple jobs or attend schools that don’t recognize learning done outside of formal classes, then it limits the amount of time people have to decide for themselves how they’ll use it.

Time is a resource.

Potential elements of this initiative include universal basic income, 30-hour work-week, class credit that’s based on self-directed learning and civic participation.
