Digital transformation presents democracy building with new challenges. The project demokratie.io aims to contribute to making democracy building more digital. As part of this process, an innovation competition has been established. At the ECDF, demokratie.io celebrated the start of its program to promote innovation. Around 50 democracy enthusiasts participated in the workshop. During the opening event, five winning projects were selected from more than 50 submissions and 32 finalists. The winners are encouraged not only to learn from one another, but also to contribute in the future to a blog in which they are to write about their projects. The activities of the event ranged from exchanging project ideas to creating new utopias and formats for more digital participation and digital democracy building.
