Eight initiatives to reinvent democracy
The international workshop #CIDemocracy- Collective Intelligence for Democracy organised by ParticipaLab at MediaLab Prado in late November 2016 produces tangible results. 15 days, 8 interdisciplinary groups, 80 participants from 30 countries and 4 continents.
Developed over the course of two weeks, each project was based on a specific concept. During the time spent together working as a group, the coordinators of each project analysed, questioned, redefined, formatted and prototyped, until they arrived at a result. Only open-source software. Eight digital citizen participation tools to facilitate a more deliberative democracy: the democracy of the future. Created by nearly one hundred people. They didn’t know each other. The last few days were extremely hectic. Come and see. This is the result.
