Political Participation and Political Dialogue: Does Technology Really Create New Opportunities?

Thu, Feb. 05 2015 - 10:30 to 12:00
Room 19 (Floor 3)

Workshop description : How might the public sector use new technologies to foster political participation in the younger generations? Several examples can be explored, such as e-voting, crowdsourcing, co-creation, social networks, etc. in Geneva and elsewhere. Is this only a question of technology? What are the other factors to leverage such as culture, perception, gaming, channels, etc? Let's rethink engagement in democracy for young people!

Interactivity : Highly interactive workshop including inspiring lightning presentations, brainstorming ideation, conception discussions, and early prototyping of bold new ideas.
