Hi everyone,

Brian, Christian and I will be planning the short and medium term future for Designing Open Democracy - the key question will be how to best advocate for interaction between the stakeholders involved in reforming or developing democracy with activity or projects.

In the spirit of 'openness', the meeting is open to anyone who wants to help contribute!

Thanks to all who were able to attend the Citizens' Jury Event! Presentations were interesting and we thank Nick Gruen and Hubertus Hofkirchner for presenting their proposals to improve democracy. If you missed out, there's a youtube video of Nick Gruen's presentation here ( (and the slides from his presentation are here (, a link to the recorded podcast from the night (, and the Open Google Doc with the notes we took (

We'd love to get your feedback on this, so please let us know if you find this post-event media useful, and what areas could be improved for next time!

In any case, we'd be interested to get your thoughts on how Designing Open Democracy can help reduce the gap between democracy reformers and other key stakeholders.

Hope to see you there!
