Results

On the occasion of the International Republic Day, celebrated every year on September 15, we would like to share with you the results of our project "Platform of Political Innovation", which aims to promote democracy by strengthening the institutional role and effectiveness of civil society, focusing on the urgent need to move the Policy to new technological and civil applications.

The project was funded as part of the "We are all citizens" program, which is part of the EEA Grants for Greece. Grant Manager of the Program is the Bodossaki Institution and the cooperating NGOs are Culture Polis, Place Identity and SciFΥ, three civil society based organizations that have combined their expertise and experience.

Innovative methods we have been experimenting with in various cities in Greece from October to May 2015 are aiming to redefine the decision-making processes at a local and national level. The findings and tools obtained through the civil workshops, educational programs and the research thar was conducted are now available to the public:

1. CITIZENS WORKSHOPS:

Α) Local scale subject  - PEDIO_AGORA: Citizens design the future of Varvakios Square

Β) Nationwide subject - CONSTITUTION 2.0: Citizens design the Constitution of Greece

2. EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS:

3. RESEARCH:

The presentations of the international meeting with subject "PARTICIPATION OF CITIZENS: From designing a neighborhood square to designing the country’s Constitution" are available from Blod.gr, while the overall video is available here.

 

 

This project is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Grants Greek NGO Programme “We are all Citizens”. The Bodossaki Foundation is the Fund Operator of this Programme. The Programme aims to strengthen civil society and enhance the contribution of NGOs to social justice, democracy and sustainable development.
