  • Tavoite vastaa myös aikoinaan eduskunnalle tehtyäosallisuusselontekoa jossa esitettiin 4 osallisuusmuotoa: Tietoosallisuus => oikeus tiedon saamiseen ja tuottamiseen, kuuleminen , kysely ihin vastaaminen ja palvelusitoumukset. Suunnitteluosallisuus => valmisteluun liittyvää vuorovaikutusta, kuten esimerkiksi yhteissuunnittelu ja kaupunkifoorumit Päätösosallisuus => osallistumista palvelujen tuottamista tai omaa asuinaluetta koskeviin päätöksiin esim. Aluelautakunnalle valtuuston delegoima päätöksenteko Toimintaosallisuus => esim. Palvelujen tuottaminen talkoovoimin Hankkeessa tuotettavat välineet mahdollistavat 3 ensimmäisen tason saavuttamisen

  • Hallinnossa, myös OM:ssä, on nyt ja on menneisyydessä ollut hyvinkin edistyksellisiä palveluita. OtaKantaa oli aikanaan suunnannäyttäjä, nykyajan hyvä esimerkki on vaikkapa Asunto-osakeyhtiälaki, joka on Facebookissa. Mutta, kuitenkin: Nykyiset palvelut ovat sirpaloituneet ympäriinsä. Ne tunnetaan huonosti , käytetään melko vähän. Osallistumiskäytännöt vaihtelevat valtavasti. 10.11.11
  • Meillä elää myytti siitä, että olemme tietoyhteiskunnan kärjessä. Olimme joskus, emme ole enää. Erilaisissa tutkimuksissa kuten YK:n E-participation indexissä, sijoituksemme ei ole likimainkaan sitä mitä kuvitellaan tai mitä sen pitäs olla. Tämä nivoutuu yhteen myös sen kanssa, että ylipäätään kuulemisessa on vähintäänkin paljon parantamisen varaa, esim, OECD:n mukaan, 10.11.11
  • ” kilpailevat” maat kuten Islanti ovat meitä edellä ja luovat Islanti 2.0:aa. Esimerkkinä olette saattaneet huomata vaikkapa perustuslakiuudistuksen, jossa on mukana kansalaisia ja jotka verkossa luo uutta perustuslakia. Erittäin kiinnostavaa tässä on huomata perustelut: ” koko kansan projekti jotta epäluulo hallintoa kohtaan hälvenisi” Ei sinänsä yllätä finanssikriisin jälkeen, hallinto on ottanut opiksi  10.11.11
  • Tän tyyppinen projekti ei voi onnistua ilman tukea ja sitoutumista johdolta. Valtioneuvoston periaatepäätös n. 1,5 vuoden takaa toteaa, että tavoitteena on, että Suomi on verkkodemokratiavertailujen 10 kärkimaan joukkoon 2010-luvun loppuun mennessä. Verkkodemokratiaan liittyvät asiat, mukaan lukien ylipäätään kansalaisten parempi kuuleminen, ovat myös vahvasti esillä nykyisessä hallitusohjelamssa. Sikäli edellytykset ovat hyvät. Tämä hankkeen taustasta, käytännöstä vähän. 10.11.11
