Facts & Figures
Decidim keeps growing and being adopted by organizations and the community.
The process started in October 2019 at the European Commission’s DG Communication and eDemocracy unit at the Joint Research Centre, the European Commission's science and knowledge service. An analysis of the needs of the Conference and which tools fit those, lead to choosing the open source tool Decidim for its technical maturity, broad community and adaptability.
Thanks to Decidim, in Barcelona we have managed to co-produce a strategic city plan together with the citizens. In 2016 we inaugurated the Municipal Action Plan in the form of a participatory process through Decidim Barcelona. Currently, this plan includes almost 7 thousand citizen proposals. One of the advantages of using this platform is that you can monitor at all times the state of implementation of the approved proposals.
Part of what makes Decidim so powerful is that it adds a level of abstraction to the work separating out the steps of a process and the activities associated with the process. That’s part of the information architecture, so that not only you are saying what is happening at each step but different parts of Decidim behave differently depending on when you are doing or depending on what step in the process you are in. The fact that that’s customizable really allows Decidim to be moulded to how we are doing our work and not our work to be moulded.
Over 400 entities, 250 governamental and 150 grass root communities have chosen Decidim for their democratic processes.Get started
