It is quite obvious that the people who make DiD are strong supporters of a type of democracy in which people have a say all the time. Some people call it grassroots democracy, other people participative democracy, others direct democracy. The ideas is to have a society where citizens are not just voters, but rather decision makers. You name it. However, as I mentioned in my last post, it may well be that other diemers have different opinions, and this is what we are about to find out.
Within DiD, there are several running projects, and many ideas for many more. In particular, we are now working on an internal survey to be distributed to all DiEM25 members. Our objective is to get a feel of what we, in DiEM25 as a whole, think about democracy. What we expected from DiEM25 before we joined, what we think we have, what we would like to have.
We are well in the way to have this survey ready, but presenting it all diemers and collecting the responses for further analysis, is one of our next big challenges. If you have any ideas on how to go about it, or you want to collaborate in the project, you are most welcome.
It may be important to point out that DiD is not a closed group, you may come and go as you please. You can participate in one project and forget about the rest, or just join the online meetings discussions, or drop by for a political debate chat.
It’ll be good to see you around.
Salud, Paz y Democracia
