One of the first European digital platforms to foster citizen empowerment by creating mass processes for strategic planning, participatory budgeting, public consultation, collaborative design for regulations, urban spaces and election processes. The platform makes it easier for people to connect with each other, reach agreements and start initiatives on topical policy issues that concern them, or trigger new decision-making processes. Citizens can use Decidim to provide different proposals on where to spend money, evaluate projects and vote for them. After that, they can track the implementation of the project.
Decidim is a digital platform built collaboratively as free open software. Technically, Decidim is a web environment produced in Ruby on Rails (a programming language) using blockchain technology that allows anybody to create and configure a website platform to be used safely by a network of citizens.
