During the past two years, D-CENT (Decentralised Citizens
ENgagement Technologies) has been working to transform democracy in a very
concrete way: helping movements, cities, and political parties to build
technologies, methods and tools that can make the democratic system more
in-sync with collective aspirations of the 21st century. To showcase and celebrate the results of the
D-CENT project a week-long programme of activity is taking place in madrid
including a Democracy lab and International conference.
23 27 May, Medialab Prado
The week begins with a four-day Democracy Lab (23-27 May,
Medialab-Prado) delivering workshops, hackathons and open sessions to develop,
think and design tools, processes and strategies for democratic participation.
27 28 May, Museo Reina Sofia
The Commons technology and the right to a democratic city
international conference (27-28 May, Museo Reina Sofia) will conclude the
weeks activities. Prompting discussion on network democracy, new forms of
citizen participation and digital commons in democratic Cities, the conference
will showcase the success of the European D-CENT project and look at the future
of digital democracy.
