📖 Decidim Book: A Gift to Celebrate Our Birthday

Today we turn 7 years old! On February 1st, 2017, Decidim was born, a free software project with a community involved in its governance, and which today has become a digital public good recognized by the DPGA, extended to over 30 countries and with more than 3 million participants.

After 7 years of work, we present our book: "Decidim, a Technopolitical Network for Participatory Democracy", detailing every aspect of the project: its principles, practices, and future challenges, sparking a crucial debate about democracy in the digital age. This book is not only a useful tool for the uncertain present, but also to face the major global democratic challenges of the coming decades.

Just like everything in Decidim, this book is published under a free copyleft license, reflecting its open nature. We hope it continues to evolve and enrich itself with the collective intelligence of its community.
