Own objectives

  1. clarify what the event is for
  2. prepare the event
  3. handle participation outside of the event
    1. during it but remotely
    2. after it



  • know how you vote during the next election
    • not necessarily for whom but rather what is the process most coherent with your own ideal
    • prepare ahead of the actual voting moment in order to be protected from the overload of information and manipulative techniques
    • share and learn how to leverage new techniques available


To focus on the process rather than constantly trying to produce bias toward a specific worldview

  • no official party allowed, only citizens
  • the abstraction of the voting process designed or picked has to be shared back to others
  • the voting decision itself does not have to be public
  • deciding not to vote can itself
  • not following the rules lead to exclusion from the event and its platform

Expected outcome

  • a list of voting process coherent to a diverse set of ideals and leveraging all the tools, old and new, available to citizen desiring to be active in a political process

Possible activities

  • presentations
    • evolution of the political system
    • evolution of the tools of participation
  • workshops
    • hands on a new tool

    3. vote randomly
  4. integrate discussions with others
