Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

We are participatory and of course, we trust in what we participated. Just do not know how to participate and assimilate the participation of our partners. Pick up an important subject in each entity and apply the liquid democracy as a way to discuss and perhaps solve the problems that matter. Then see the merit of this kind of decision in each case, between the confidence and enthusiasm of those involved citizens.

Where will your idea take place?


Why does Europe need your idea?

Take the communities to involve its members in the solutions to their existence and continuation. Turn on collective creators of the solutions that have the responsibility to apply. After more comprehensive understanding of the collective issues, involve people in decision-making.

What is your impact?

The social disability to involve people in decisions. Working timeliness of decisions to be carried out successfully and well assimilated by all because everyone participated and therefore believe that under the circumstances, that was the best decision

How do you get there?

The ASSIS proposes to make a practice of liquid democracy program ( delegative revocable) to use in 10 collective entities for a year. In classes or school areas, neighborhood associations , local clubs . Pick up an important subject in each entity and apply the liquid democracy as a way to discuss and perhaps solve the problems that matter.

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

Associations with an interest in active citizenship. The schools.

What makes your idea stand apart?

Opportunities to participate are not available for everyone. But the EU can not happen without everyone feel part! Only through active participation can we get as close as possible to each individual the opportunity to feel part. This only happens with education and practice of participatory methods.
