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.
The week will begin 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. The Commons technology and the right to a democratic city international conference (27-28 May, Reina Sofia Museum) will conclude the week’s activities. Prompting discussion on network democracy, new forms of citizen participation and digital commons in democratic Cities, the conference will look at the future of digital democracy.
Among the speakers who will attend this event, it must be highlighted the journalist Paul Mason, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, the Mayor of Madrid Manuela Carmena and Raquel Rolnik, architect, professor and urban planner. It is definitely an unmissable date and there is still time to register here.
