We develop strategies to upgrade the democratic system to the 21st Century.

Projects

DemocracyOS is an open-source web application designed to improve the chances of citizen to participate in decision-making processes. This is the technological manifestation of our main mision: to bring the political system closer to those behaviors and technologies of this century.

Civic stack is a showcase for open-source civic tech. It has been designed collaboratively as a window to show together all these technologies that are meant to empower citizens.

SOLE crafts self-organized learning environments, based on the pedagogy of Sugata Mitra. It involves many children, a few computers and one big question. The Internet transforms the way we learn, also in the schools of Buenos Aires.

Red de Innovación Política

We’re a group of Latin Americans affected by the state of democracy in our region. On July 1st, 2016, we met up in Buenos Aires and set ourselves the aim of building a network. Our first step was to collectively write a letter that speaks of our principles, values and political goals. We are united by the dream of a democracy of commons, a democracy that redistributes power, increases political inclusion and promotes human rights.

Recuperar la política

The economic, technological and cultural transformations of the last decades raise new questions: How do we face these challenges? How are power and democracy organized in a liquid society? How are jurisdictions of public policies defined in increasingly global societies, economies and issues? It is in this setting where initiatives to renew politics arise and find meaning.
