How a systems approach could work / Doteveryone work-in-progress
  1. A digitally capable government, passing actionable, joined-up legislation
  2. Modernised regulators
  3. Accessible ombudspeople and consumer groups that the people can easily find and use to seek effective redress
  4. Campaigns and activism to raise awareness and give a voice to society
  5. Public understanding, for greater individual protection and empowerment
  6. Workers, shareholders, and investors sharing individual and collective responsibility
  7. Consumer choice as a driver of better brand values and corporate responsibility (or, the role of shame in ethical business practices)
