Community Meeting: Thematic groups updates and open call for content
As we start 2024, we're excited to invite you to our upcoming Community Meeting!
This program includes a permanent open call for ideas, so that any member of the community can present, for example :
an interesting use case of Decidim ;
the development of a new module ;
a new Decidim community in the making ;
and any idea you could have!
This will also be a space where thematic groups (translations, design, etc.) can present their progress and questions (if they so wish) and recruit potentially interested people!
Finally, we want to create this format to facilitate the on-boarding of newcomers to the community, so that they feel welcome and can quickly identify the different areas where they can contribute and the people they can turn to.
You want to share something with the community? Let us know in the comments section and you'll have a dedicated time during the meeting!
Presentation time (20 minutes), we each introduced ourselves and talked a little bit about what we do / what compelled us to come here
Thematic updates (20 minutes)
Translation hackathon - Translating decidim and translating the documentation. Too much for 2 hours event

What is the governance model for translations - for ex: who is proofreader?

Speaking about how to make political decisions regarding how to translate things
How to cascade terms that are used multiple times within several strings
Focus on the source language first, and agree on governance prior to the rest
Bug bash party in March, focus on the mobile version and design inconsistencies
Open floor (20 minutes)
Hollie is interested in implementing Decidim for children, how to implement? we can possibly connect her with OSP, Ocktree, NYC, or PokeCode, Platoniq? focus is on making it safe for children to participate
They are working in proposals for the local council
Nil: Barcelona is organizing a new participatory council called Volem Decidim that is directed to only children and youth. There's a module developed by pokecode that helps with it.
https://github.com/AjuntamentdeBarcelona/decidim-module-kids: The module deals mainly with consent of the children from parents
In code of japan they provide technical and hosting support for decidim
Filene a general decidim 101 would be nice
Open agenda, really good, new people felt welcome and participative
Let's make note-taking collaborative next time
Let's add maybe here in the pad or in a PPT slide the different channels where people can get involved
Perhaps a short decidim 101 would also help
