The eDemocracy Webinar Series powered by Ethelo

Register for our Upcoming Webinar

Thursday, October 22nd at 11a PDT / 2p EDT / 6p UTC

Duration: 1 hour           Cost: Free

Come with Ethelo and eDemocracy Solutions (and Batman!) to look at how online democracy technology can help align communities, and empower them to make better decisions, together.

We’ll take you through an online public engagement to design a municipal climate plan using Ethelo’s unique algorithm. We will demonstrate how climate plans and other big government decisions such as budgets can be created in a way that not only involves a broad spectrum of society (including traditionally underrepresented groups), but can be used as a tool to educate, inform, and get unified public support on important policy decisions. So set up your Batsignal and let’s save democracy together.

Why Join?

  • Learn about eDemocracy, the Ethelo platform, and local climate action in a welcoming and interactive setting
  • Discover the latest tools and technology for building an equitable approach to democracy
  • Explore opportunities to get involved and be part of the evolution towards better democracy

Each session is full of valuable tools, tips, and resources to help you scale your community engagement and climate action practices. And of course, we record every second of it for you to watch at your leisure.
