Debate group on Decidim´s principles, practices and impacts
An assembly is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Assemblies hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general assembly (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of assemblies.
This is an open debate space dealing with the principles, practices and impacts of the Decidim project
Welcome! We are a space open to the community that deals with the Decidim politics, in other words, the politics of the platform and the project, as well as its political vision and impact on society. We start with a common objective: to reflect on the principles, practices and effects of Decidim. We want to produce and promote new participatory practices, tools, standards, and, beyond that, a radical vision of democracy. Through this space we will articulate participatory processes to stir debates and orient collective positions on matters of common (tecno)political interest.
