E-Democracy builds online public space in the heart of real democracy and community. Our mission is to harness the power of online tools to support participation in public life, strengthen communities, and build democracy.

These Neighbours Forums connect you online to real-world local community. Let's raise our voice in rebuilding Christchurch, New Zealand one community at a time.
These public online forums use real names to build neighbourly trust and promote useful, civil exchange.
Participate via e-mail or the web. Your choice.
Volunteer Leaders Matter: As these forums were started by two Christchurch volunteers after the second major quake as an urgent experiment, all of the local forums except for Papanui and the original regional forum need a forum host from each area to succeed. This vital Forum Manager role works across many communities and volunteer support is available. Read up on the exciting social benefits of neighbor connecting online.
