What should the G-20 do next?
Monday 30 March 2009
With world leaders from the G-20 countries meeting in London this week, in the midst of the worst international banking crisis in generations, we would like Independent readers to help the G-20 to think through what to do next.
We have seeded the map above with some of the initial goals and suggested actions from the the official G-20 London Summit website, but this is really just to start the conversation flowing.
To start exploring the map, click on a small sphere to delve deeper into the debate, and click on the largest sphere to move back up through the debate.
You can just watch the map evolving here – but what we would really like you to do is register and begin to comment, suggest new issues, rate the different options and arguments, and add new options and arguments of your own
As before, the whole structure of the map is like a wiki – every aspect is provisional, and open to further refinement – and everyone can add new issues, positions, arguments, and evidence to the map.
The aim is to weave together all of the political and ecnomic arguments into a rich, transparent structure that anyone can explore and gain a relatively deep understanding of the complex considerations and choices quickly.
Each element is described not only via the heading and roll-over text shown in the visualization above, but also via an expanded text that can be up to 50,000 characters and include images and other media. You can begin to access and explore this deeper content via the buttons displayed below the graph.
As with the other maps in the series you can you can keep up to date with developments on the G-20 map via the Independent Minds blog and @TheIndyDebate on Twitter. And if you would like to embed the map on your own website or blog (like a YouTube video) for your own readers, you can do so using the code shown below:
