City Balancing Act

    • Secretary General of the United Nations António Guterres addressed world leaders on the 25th of October 2019: "The global wave of demonstrations we are witnessing shows a growing lack of trust between people and political establishments. People are hurting and want to be heard. We must listen to the real problems of real people, and work to restore the social contract."
    • Imagine two playing fields. One is that of daily life, being the living 'white' world. The other is the system 'black' world to rule and govern that. Civil society (Pantone® Poppy) respectively Politics (Pantone® Violet Tulip) are the components in this balancing act. Politics behaves itself in the system world mainly as the establisment. Civil society is seeking how to get more grounding in democratic principles, is hungry for leaders who finally listen and is questioning the way they are represented by the elected politicians.
    • Civil society's maturity is developing very fast (from square, delta, rolling to mature), while Politics' reaction is relatively slow and defensive, with fragmentation of the political landscape and further drifting apart as a result.
