Target audience: Developers, UX designers, Project managers

Engaging people with the most diverse backgrounds in participation platforms is a global challenge. This challenge involves offering participatory processes where the rules of the game are clear and make sense considering people's everyday problems. In addition, it is necessary to model the choice architectures in a simple and direct way so that the participants can easily visualize what they need to do in order to leave their contributions, reducing the participation barriers as much as possible, like number of clicks and the complexity of the interfaces.

During the experience of using the Decidim platform in the process for participatory planning priorities of the Federal Government of Brazil for the period 2024-2027, adaptations and simplifications of the Decidim standard interface were developed and are being packaged in a plugin to be made available to the global community.

The objective of this workshop is to do a hands-on dive into the main elements of this development so that participants feel empowered to use the developed solution and improve it for the benefit of the global community.
