Rethinking Democracy: When Design Meets Politics
Democracy is in crisis. All around the world we're using electoral systems that aren't fit for purpose in 2018. Public participation is not only state-driven anymore and increasingly other entities are better able to prototype intelligent methods that can help the world make better decisions. Yet our politics haven’t changed with this shift.

This session will explain how and demonstrate possible solutions that bring for more convergence between people.
