Welcome to Coupar Angus Democracy, the World's most democratic system of local community planning.
The first step is a survey that asks people how well their local community meets their social, economic and environmental needs. This includes a numerical scoring system – see the example from Coupar Angus above.
Later we will set up groups where local people can discuss survey results and other data, and develop a community action plan to improve things.
CASCADE has two basic principles. Firstly, that communities have the right to determine their own future, and secondly, that everyone should have an equal say. To that end, CASCADE is currently developing its own training programme in participatory research, to ensure that all discussions are friendly, effective and inclusive. Watch this space for updates.
