National Collaborative Constitutional Convention
Welcome to the National Collaborative Process for The Australian People's Constitution
In November 2023, ACFP published a proposal for the conduct of a National Collaborative Process for Development of a New Australian Constitution - The Australian People's Constitution.
The proposal was made pursuant to publication by ACFP's Founder Bronwyn Kelly of The People's Constitution: the path to empowerment of Australians in a 21st century democracy.
Developments in association with the proposed program of nation-wide community engagement and collaboration, which is envisaged as a five-year long constitutional convention led by the people of Australia rather than parliaments or governments, are accessible on this page.

November 2023 - Launch of a four-part essay on how Australians can save their democracy and sovereignty by building a new Constitution
In this four-part essay, ACFP's Founder Bronwyn Kelly discusses how Australians are being dragged into a full ceding of sovereignty over their country and how, if we do nothing to reverse this, we will end up losing our democracy itself. She offers evidence in the essay that we are on the brink of losing both our sovereignty and democracy. To help prevent this loss, Bronwyn suggests that Australia needs a new type of Constitution and to substantiate this need, she poses four questions:
Why does Australia need a new Constitution?
What’s wrong with our democracy?
How can Australians take back their democracy and sovereignty?
How can Australians achieve a peaceful coexistence of sovereignties and self-determining political equals?
The answers can help Australians establish a new democracy and take back their sovereignty over their beautiful country.
