“Towards a World Parliament – Digital and Personal Meetings “

 

Please note the following dates:

 

1.

Small informal meeting on Friday, October 20th 2017

at the Friedrichstädtische Galerie in 10963 Berlin, Stresemannstr. 27

from 07:00 pm till 09:00 pm

This event will be conducted in German.

Die Veranstaltung wird in deutscher Sprache durchgeführt.

Here, the starting signal for the development of an internet tool for global debate, voting and elections will be given. By this, we intend to show that, by going digital, global democracy is a feasible goal.

We then hope to present this internet tool in working mode at the Global Week of Action 2018.

We will, however, also propose and discuss ways to approach the goal of a World Parliament by personal encounter on a local level – as we believe that both ways, I-voting and meeting in person, are necessary to bring forth the idea of a World Parliament.

Want to take part in this meeting? In this case please sign in by mail: weidinger@democracywithoutborders.org. Please note that the number of participants will be limited!

Program

o Summary of October 20th and the feedback given to the World Parliament Experiment tool (Rasmus Tenbergen, Michael Weidinger)

o Live Demo http://www.tgde.org/ – including the new input by testing in the weeks before (Rasmus Tenbergen)

o Discussion (all participants):

Which ideas should be followed up?

Which next steps are to be taken to bring the new internet tool for Debate, Voting and Elections into life?

Which other forms of personal meetings and visible action can be realized to draw attention to the idea of a world parliament?

 

Want to contribute to the new tool, wherever you are? In this case go to http://www.tgde.org/. Here you will find – with the already existing World Parliament Experiment – a tool for debate and voting which is technologically outdated but nevertheless contains interesting ideas and and functions (e.g., in the sense of Liquid Democracy). Test it as thoroughly as you please – and then give us feedback: rasmus.tenbergen@world-parliament.org and/or weidinger@democracywithoutborders.org.

Tell us which tool features you appreciate and what should be taken into account when developing the new tool!
