Direct Democracy proposal for Education
Environmental Studies to be redefined and included in the National Curriculum
Whilst in previous employment, the founder of the People's Administration developed educational activity schemes for schools which focused upon children respecting the local natural environment. The aim was to educate the young so that the teenagers and adults of tomorrow will not become the vandals, litterbugs and fly-tippers that we all endure today.
Through developing children's innate enthusiasm for nature, the schemes aimed to teach children through activities based in local garden centres and local parks and in the schools themselves. It has long been the founder's personal belief that teaching children through interactive-learning is a very positive and fun way of showing how and why we need the environment and why it makes sense to respect it.
The schemes involved classes growing and maintaining plants from seed in local community centres and then growing them out in the school grounds and in the community to become part of the children's local environment. Other aspects included litter clearing and establishing herb gardens and wild gardens in local parks and, children growing organic vegetables from seed to take home.
It is hoped that giving children the opportunity to co-create their local natural environment will encourage their respect for it and, also empower them as they grow up with the belief that they can have a direct positive impact on their environment and society.
The schemes aim to teach about the benefits of organic methods over synthetic methods and to teach of how for every natural problem, there is a natural solution.
Using volunteers and resources from local councils and schools that were already in place, the schemes require little or no additional funding to implement nationally and immediately. Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to include these schemes in the national curriculum for 2 hours a week from the age of 5 upwards.
The scheme was explained to David Cameron in-person by the founder of the People's Administration and, he is aware that they could be implemented nationally and almost over-night with little or no additional funding requirements.
In front of the public, David Cameron expressed much interest in this policy when with the founder of the People's Administration but has since declined to implement it or to explain to us why he won't implement it and now completely avoids the issue.
Should the People's Administration install direct democracy, we propose to implement this policy with immediate effect.
Voting for direct democracy outside a general election
It is up to us, the people [not the politicians] to use the power that we have always had, to choose to implement direct democracy as soon as possible.
This is not a protest campaign.
In accordance with Magna Carta Article 61 and with UN UDHR Article 21 and with all democratic principals up-held by the UN [which the UK is signed-up to], the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog is a UN-sanctioned and legally recognised voting format for UK reform to direct democracy - even outside a general election.
Vote legitimately for a peaceful and structured UK reform to direct democracy now simply by following the People's Administration's Direct Democracy Twitter blog and when numbers reach a point of critical mass, we'll do the rest.
The People's Administration's constitution for reform to direct democracy and our voting protocols for implementing direct democracy have both been accepted by the UK Electoral Commission and the UN as legitimate. In a general election, the People's Administration DOES NOT have to field candidates to secure your vote on the ballot paper. Outside a general election, you can vote for a legitimate reform to direct democracy now by following @self_rule
