Webinar: How to upgrade democracy for the Internet era...
…with Pia Mancini: Presentation and discussion

Wednesday February 18th at 16.30 CET - 17.30 CET

The Nordic network «NVL Distans» together with the project «Dldact» would like to invite you to join this exciting webinar on democracy in the Internet era. According to the network behind the tool Democracy OS “The internet has changed everything: the way we share and consume culture, how we engage in commerce, and how we communicate with others. But the internet has failed to change in one key area of our lives: politics. Democracy is in great need of a serious upgrade.

A tool that will transform the noise we create during protests into a signal that has a clear, direct and strong impact on the political system. Our vision is that DemocracyOS will become the operating system of a more open and participatory government.”
