A myriad of public decisions are made each year that affect the quality of our lives, the health of our biosphere, and the welfare of future generations. Regrettably, these decisions are often made without our participation.

Metagovernment is a community of people who are exploring and developing various technologies that would allow citizens to be directly involved in the discussions and decisions that affect them most.

We explore, challenge, and collaborate with each other in the development of various ideas and technologies for these new governance systems.

Our forum is uniquely neutral ground. We enjoy an abundance of visions which often makes for very lively discussions.

Please join our community and help us to develop these next iterations of governance.
