Please note: This page is still under construction – please click here for a list of completed chapters. The People’s Agenda 21 Project is a 100% volunteer project created and designed by the One Community Team. We are working 1000′s of hours to keep developing its 40 chapters of sustainability to share for those interested in sustainability what is available and working around the world. Thank you for your patience.

Help Supporting the Role of Potential Groups

Preamble: The achievement of sustainable development is built on broad public participation in decision-making.  In the more specific context of the environment and development, the benefit for new forms of participation has emerged.

It is then the vision of People’s Agenda 21 to help in the open sourcing of a new paradigm that bypasses infrastructures, definitions or rules affecting access to and participation by non-governmental organizations; rather the cooperative work of People’s Organized Bodies, institutions or agencies associated with the implementation of sustainability are actively sourced, integrated and supported.

Direct and meaningful consultation with people, partnership between all sections of society, consensus, transparency, institutional openness, and individual and group accountability, are essential elements in Social Wellbeing and thus One Community envisions itself as proactively moving towards real social partnership in support of common efforts for sustainable development. A Social Partnership is a collective of groups and individuals, i.e. the social partners, business, industry, civil society and experts, who acts as  ‘catalyst’ in enhancing and broadening implementation in an area of human and/or social interaction.

Openness, Transparency & Accountability

Individuals, groups and organizations can have access to information relevant to the environment and development held by individual and local authorities, including information on products and activities that have or are likely to have a significant impact on the environment, and information on environmental protection measures.

Partnerships can be operated in an open, transparent and accountable manner – and in good faith, so that ownership of the partnership process and its outcomes are shared equally by all participants; its activities can be accessible to the public for the mutual benefit of all.

This includes the benefit of individuals, groups and organizations to participate in environmental impact assessment ideas together and to know about and participate in decisions, particularly those which potentially affect the communities in which they live and work.
