Act now for democracy: Take the democracy pledge


People are losing trust in democracy at a time when we most need strong inclusive leadership from people elected to represent us in our parliaments.

From the United States to New Zealand our democracies will be put to the test nearly 60 times this year in presidential or parliamentary elections.

And each day our governments will be put to the test as they respond to a convergence of crises. The Covid-19 pandemic, the climate emergency, unregulated technology, inequality and the scale of corporate power has created an age of anger.

Your voice matters. That’s the fundamental principle of democracy - we all have an equal say and an equal vote. But when only 37% of people think their voice matters in politics, we know we’re in trouble.

Democracy only works if people get involved. What will you do in 2020?
