Let’s address the elephant in the room, shall we…is governance boring?

Well, I think that depends entirely on how you look at it. It can certainly seem boring if you let it, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Believe it or not, if you approach it the right way, good governance can actually be quite inspiring. And that’s how I like to think about it.

Let’s play a game of pretend. What if cars ceased to exist? How would life be different? Governments would have to invest in public transport. People would walk more, get fitter and actually meet their neighbours. Concrete car parks would give way to green parks and room for more housing. Out of town monster shopping malls would be replaced by local markets and smaller urban villages. We may not be achieving utopia any time soon, but it’s great to dream.
