Digital Democratic Empowerment and Mobilisation for a Stronger EU (DigiDEM)
By piloting crowdsourcing and social listening exercises across four EU countries, the project provided a blueprint for innovative methods of citizen engagement that are implemented as complementary to representative democracy. Through its activities and outputs, DigiDEM also established a transnational community of policy makers, academics, businesses, NGOs and citizens which will continue to apply and advocate for the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to ensure inclusive and collaborative decision-making process at all levels.
Led by ECAS, the project included a total of 16 events. Please visit this page to view the list of all events and see more detailed information about each event.
The project is designed to go hand in hand with CODE Europe – a 3-year project funded by the EEA regional cooperation grants, piloting the collaborative method of crowdsourcing legislation in Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Latvia and Portugal.
