What now?

In local communities of whatever size there are always issues that need bringing to people’s attention. The data on these issues should be free and easily accessible. Often, it is difficult to find up-to-date information on local issues – the facts are rarely collected together and presented for examination. Making an issue visible can stimulate both interest and understanding. If people address an issue from the feeling level, a good start has been made. In whatever time or place – the current mood on the issue may well change at any time.


When the issues are analysed, particular questions can be extracted and problems can be recognized early. The SUMAK KAWSAY app is a superb means of broadcasting the issues that need to be addressed in local or regional associations and the local budget. The local citizens can see the issues relevant to their local area. They receive the data through the app and it takes them no trouble to register their current feelings on the particular question.
