Crowdsourcing a Constitution
As Iceland recovers from its financial crisis, the country is turning to its citizens to help write a new constitution.
Using social media including YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, Iceland's Constitutional Council is opening up the debate to encourage the people of Iceland to actively engage with and shape new laws. Every week, new clauses are published online, and citizens are encouraged to participate in a conversation on Facebook.
The aim is for the Bill to be finished by the end of July and put to referendum with no changes imposed by parliament, making the constitution truly of the people, for the people.
