New Approaches to Democracy in the Digital Age

Pia Mancini, Ttcat, Ipa Chiu, Shu Yang-Lin, Fang-Jui Chang, Liz Barry, Miguel Arana Catania, Darshana Narayanan (facilitator)

This workshop will delve into current experiments in 21st century digital democracy, including pioneering practices being developed by the g0v civic hacking community in Taiwan (including a hands-on look at how they use virtual reality as part of deliberative democracy), Madrid’s innovative efforts to foster more citizen participation, and how crowd-understanding platforms like Pol.is are enabling a new kind of community sense-making.
