Democracy at Work is a project, begun in 2010, that aims to build a social movement. The movement's goal is the transition to a new society whose productive enterprises (offices, factories, and stores) will mostly be Worker Self Directed Enterprise's, a real economic democracy.
The WSDEs would partner equally with similarly organised residential communities they interact with at the local, regional, and national levels (and hopefully international as well). That partnership would form the basis of genuine participatory democracy.
D@W Melbourne is a local chapter of this project to develop a social movement for economic and workplace democracy.
Support Democracy at Work in your community.
We are on the brink of a larger mass movement ready to demand alternative solutions to capitalism. This movement can be successful if we are willing to work toward a solution that supports and empowers workers in their respective enterprises. We want to help support those interested in organising and mobilising this movement.
It takes action and advocacy of everyday community leaders to influence policy, politics and culture; as an active member of a group, you are jumping into the front lines of this movement in your community. Join us as we learn how to educate and promote economic democracy in our cities and campuses.
