Barcelona (we decide), a project of the City Council to give citizens the opportunity to discuss proposals using an interface for group-discussions and comments. Decidim is indeed an online participatory-democracy platform that embodies a completely innovative approach. First of all it is entirely and collaboratively built as free software. As remembered by Xabier Barandiaran Decidim is a web environment that using the programming language Ruby on Rails allows anybody to create and configure a website platform to be used in the form of a political network for democratic participation. Any organization (local city council, association, university, NGO, neighbourhood or cooperative) can create mass processes for strategic planning, participatory budgeting, collaborative design for regulations, urban spaces and election processes.

Class Action Cross-Class Organizing Webinar Tickets, Wed, Mar 20, 2019 at 8:00 PM

Class Action Cross-Class Organizing Webinar Tickets, Wed, Mar 20, 2019 at 8:00 PM | Economic & Social Networks - Networked Economy | Scoop.it
Welcome to the Class Action webinar about cross-class organizing! Winning social justice takes people-power, which means reaching across class and race divides to work together.
Long-time organizers and Class Action board members Zoe Williams and Betsy Leondar-Wright will share tips on how to:
Take down the invisible walls that block low-income people’s access to progressive groups
Shift coalitions away from middle-class-dominant culture to create welcoming groups for working-class people
Discover new class-privileged allies and find roles that tap their advantages to advance the mission
A donation of $20 to Class Action is suggested, but the sliding scale slides down to zero, so don’t let money stop you from joining the conversation.
Participants will be sent a Zoom link and instructions to participate one week prior to the Webinar.
