How do social media tools change the way we participate in democratic systems? How can we use these tools to realise our ideas, interests and dreams? Which possibilities do these new means of communication offer for our organisations? Within the seminar “Local Democracy in a Changing World” participants from 15 countries including regions such as the Middle East, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus will come to Vienna to discuss these questions. As part of the seminar we also invite the general public to join the discussion. The Digital Democracy Camp 2013 (April 24th 9-17h, Ragnarhof) gathers people with various backgrounds to share their experience with social media and to reflect how these tools will change the way we organise our way of living together. If you are interested, please have a look at the announcement of the barcamp here.
