What we did
We talked with people in person and did remote online testing. We also reviewed how other countries are engaging with the public.
In this section
Over the 6 weeks, we completed interviews and workshops and reviewed other countries to look for opportunities where we could improve people’s experience when participating in government.
We wanted to hear from the widest variety of people we could within six weeks. We talked to 195 citizens, 9 non-government organisations and 20 government agencies.
There are consistent themes coming from the research on how governments can improve and increase people’s participation in decision making.
