OECD Innovative Citizen Participation Network | Virtual meeting: Future of democracy in light of Covid-19

27 October - 27 September 2020 in Online


The global pandemic has been a catalyst for accelerating a rethinking of public decision making in times of emergency. Many of you have been directly affected by the challenges posed, such as physical distancing and lockdowns necessitating online alternatives to physical meetings, and governments struggling to ensure citizen compliance with public health measures imposed top-down.

Our founder and director, Alberto Alemanno, has been invited to discuss the different democratic responses to COVID-19 with the “lightning talks” of the first half of the OECD event. The second half of the meeting will be a virtual world cafĂ© about the questions you would like to discuss most with other Network members.
