For democratic organizations and collectives of any size and kind.

You can use Decidim in a public or private organisation, with hundreds or thousands of potential participants, such as a city council, an association, a university, an NGO, a trade union, a neighbourhood association or a cooperative...

Thanks to Decidim you will be able to configure spaces for participation (initiatives, assemblies, processes or consultations) and enrich them through the multiple available components (face-to-face meetings, surveys, proposals, voting, follow-up of results, comments and many more).

Räume für die Teilnahme


Beteiligungsprozesse To democratize common issues, step by step

Prozesse sind ein Raum, der das Erstellen, Aktivieren/Deaktivieren und Verwalten verschiedener partizipatorischer Prozesse ermöglicht. Diese unterscheiden sich von anderen Räumen, indem sie in verschiedenen Phasen strukturiert werden, in denen alle Komponenten integriert werden können. Beispiele für partizipatorische Prozesse sind: ein Wahlprozess für Mitglieder eines Ausschusses, partizipative Budgetierung, ein strategischer Planungsprozess. das gemeinsame Schreiben einer Regulierung oder Norm, die Gestaltung eines städtischen Raumes oder die Erstellung eines öffentlichen Politikplans.


Gremien The power of collective self-organization

Makes it possible to set up decision-making bodies or groups (councils, working groups, commissions, etc.) that meet regularly, detailing their composition, listing and geolocating their meetings. It allows participation in them, for example, attending in person or online, adding issues to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by that body.


Votings The right to decide with all democratic guarantees

Makes it possible to coordinate referendums, trigger discussions and debates, get voting results published and connect to a secure e-voting system.


Initiativen Setting everyone's agenda, within everyone's reach

Participants can create collaborative initiatives, define their path and goals, gather endorsements, discuss, debate and disseminate initiatives, set meeting points where signatures can be collected from attendees or debates open to other members of the organisation.



Your ideas in detail

Create a proposal using a creation wizard, compare it with the existing ones, publish it on the platform and include additional information such as geolocation or attached documents and images. This component also allows you to navigate, filter and interact with a set of proposals. In addition, with the proposal-incubator you can create collaborative proposals.


Decide your choice

Offers organisations the possibility of activating different voting or support systems around proposals: unlimited, limited to a given threshold, weighted, cost-based, etc. Backed by secure and encrypted e-voting technology.


No proposal without an answer

Turn proposals into results and give official responses concerning their acceptance or rejection, merging various proposals into a single result.


End-to-end transparency

It offers the possibility to subdivide results into projects, to define and apply progress states around their implementation, as well as to show the degree of achievement of results grouped by categories and scopes.


To meet and not miss anything

Die Versammlungskomponente bietet Organisationen und Teilnehmern die Möglichkeit, Meetings einzuberufen, ihren Ort und ihre Zeit zu bestimmen die Teilnehmer registrieren und begrenzen, die Struktur und den Inhalt der Sitzung sowie die Veröffentlichung der Protokolle und die daraus resultierenden Vorschläge definieren.

Partizipative Texte

To analyze, synthesize, and build in common

Can be used to convert long text documents into several proposals or results and, vice versa, to compose and display a unified text based on a collection of proposals or results.


Wo große Events uraufgeführt werden

Create a website for a big event. Unify the program by joining up a series predefined meetings (chats, workshops, etc.), and manage attendees.


Weil die Meinung deiner Gemeinschaft wichtig ist

Design and publish surveys. Display and download results.


Gleichheit und Gerechtigkeit der Zufälligkeit

Allows to select a number of proposals (e.g. candidates for a jury) with random, yet reproducible, procedures that guarantees non-biased and uniform distributions.


Aufbau einer kollektiven Intelligenz

Enables users to add comments, to value them in favour, against or neutral, vote them, answer and receive notifications about responses.
