Pursuing collaborative democracy online
In order to build trust between the government and the people it should serve, democracy amongst the people should be encouraged and supported. Collaboratively sharing ideas and working together towards common goals or generating solutions for shared problems ideally happens at every level of democracy.
Your Priorities is an e-Democracy platform, developed by the Icelandic Citizens Foundation. It provides tools for communities to collaboratively share ideas and work towards consensus.
Users of the platform include the UK-based NHS Citizen initiative. Your Priorities won the European e-Democracy Awards 2011 and have won other numerous Icelandic awards for innovation and participation.
