The problem is that early-stage decisions don’t actually have the same accessibility to the people in the barricades - sorry - in the streets or the larger civic society. First it’s too professional. The scholars and academics are invited exactly because they could understand the jargon, the technical terms and all the the context that has been going on before and so on. These are not very easily understood by the general civil society. The next thing is that this not presented in a way that only cost one minute or five-minutes of people’s attention. It is the same problem that we talked in re to open data.
