IN-DEPTH: Can we save democracy? W/Iain Walker & Tim Hollo
We have finally reached the last episode of season 5 on the decline of democracy and boy is it a good one!
This week Rhiannon brings you two incredibly passionate guests, Iain Walker and Tim Hollo.
Iain is the executive director of New Democracy – a research organisation established to ensure citizens trust their government's decision making and democratic processes. Rhiannon chats to Iain about deliberative democracies, increasing participation and community involvement in democratic processes, and what new kinds of democracy could look like in the future.
Then Rhiannon chats to Tim Hollo, who is not only the executive director of the Greens institute and an author but is the Greens candidate for the seat of Canberra. They discuss the crisis of democracy in contemporary society, international and national issues influencing democracy and citizens involvement, and how to work towards ecological democracy.

We hope you have loved this season as much as we have and are inspired to help protect democracy in the future. The Global Questions team will be taking a short break and getting ready for next season, so don't go anywhere!! Stay tuned for updates on next season on our socials!
