Digital Democracy

What is Digital Democracy?

Digital Democracy is often misunderstood as simply "voting online", when it can be used for so much more.

Effectively implemented, Digital Democracy:

allows participants to comment and deliberate


creates outcomes that can be actioned immediately


builds trust and serves to educate participants on trade-offs and dependencies


fundamentally shifts political power to the participants
