David Miliband decided to encourage members of the public to help DEFRA draw up an “Environmental Contract”. The project was to be mediated by a Wiki: a website which can be freely edited by “stakeholders” (i.e. anybody with access to a computer and a little bit of time on their hands).
As you might expect, not everybody took the project seriously. The Wiki has now been “locked” and can’t be edited further. Which is a pity.
At present, the Environmental Contract Wiki looks like this.
At 1 pm, however, some very innovative ideas were being brainstormed on the DEFRA website…
