Abstract

Contains a debate about the Australian nation, its future and its need on encouraging its participative environmental and social planning. Proposed are three suggestions for making citizenship relevant and promoting an exchange of ideas about citizenship: 1. Putting 'life' in to the UN Declaration of Human Rights; 2. Popularising Value Judgements of community organisations; and 3. Community education about community organisations. Enclosed are three 'value judgements' which have been worked out by participants of community organisations: 1. The Ecoso Exchange Newsletter value judgements, which were adopted by the Crow Collection Association in 1991; 2. The 1973 value judgements of the North Melbourne Association as expressed in their report 'Citizens Action Plan for North and West Melbourne (CAN)"; and 3. The 1985 value judgements of the Communist Party of Australia (Victorian Branch) as expressed in their report "Make Melbourne Marvellous".
