“Taking control of politics: can digital democracy help?”

Invitation to the EUCROWD workshop and meetup


Newspeak House, London, United Kingdom, 9 February 2017

How well are we using online and digital technology to take part in politics? Do platforms already exist for engaging with politics from a local to European level, or do we need to create something new? If so what, and how?

The Democratic Society will host an online discussion forum and an offline event for members of the public and for professionals in the field to consider the state of play of digital democratic participation in Britain today and to come up with ideas for the future.

Event programme and location

Workshop: 1pm-5pm

Meetup: Digital Democracy & EU (drinks and pizza!) 5pm-7pm

Location: Newspeak House, 133 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG, United Kingdom

Event description

Bring your ears and your ideas to explore with others which online tools/platforms could be most powerful for people to engage with politicians and help you get your opinions heard where it matters.

Come to the workshop, meetup or both.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet a variety of international people with expertise in the field of digital democracy, but we want to hear your expertise too. We hope you will develop thoughts and ideas about how you would like to engage in politics and input your ideas – whether you know a little or a lot!

Priority will be given to people under 30. Take part in creating the future.


The EUCROWD event in London is organized by The Democratic Society Ltd. with the financial support of the Europe for Citizens programme of the European Union.
