"OurCanberra is an open community built solely for Canberrans to share and join the discussion, whether for fun or serious! Here you can find great content from across the Internet, catch-up on local news, share your own stories and links, and discuss anything and everything!"Michael Pasqualone, OurCanberra Founder
Our mission is to ensure that Canberra has access to an open, powerful and self-sustaining community that gives everyone an equal and powerful voice. We'll deliver this thought our core objectives and values:
This means OurCanberra has an open policy framework, similar Wikipedia where anyone can read, edit and improve our policies and procedures.
To make those in power accountable to the community, all key positions are voted in by you; just like our own Government. So if you're unhappy with the direction OurCanberra is heading then boot those out in power and elect someone who will do a better job!
OurCanberra is not-for-profit and it's built into our constitution that it's always to remain not-for-profit - this means our business plan will always revolve around improving the community, for the benefit of Canberra and not beholden to what businesses and advertisers want.
