Our values and commitments
In the face of declining participation and trust in our representatives, we believe that participatory practices need to take on a more prominent place in our society. Not only in the political world, but also in the functioning of our companies, the governance of our associations and the conduct of our collective projects.
We believe in collective intelligence, in the emergence of open innovation through the collective. Participatory digital tools such as Decidim allow the creation of a framework conducive to its emergence. These processes are part of a step-by-step approach based on a very precise methodology, while keeping track of each individual's contributions. The challenge is to come up with a synthesis and concrete actions in which everyone can follow the evolution and get involved.
Free and Open Source Software
We share the conviction that digital democracy software must be free and open source. This means that all users have the freedom to duplicate, improve and analyze the software's code. It is a guarantee of quality andof security,but above all of transparency,essential for legitimacyin any democratic process.
Social and Solidarity Economy
Open Source Politics is an enterprise in the field of the social and solidarity economy. Our action participates in the democratization of tools of participatory democracy and the deepening of their use by any type of organization relying on collective intelligence.
Our company is at the heart of an ecosystem of players who share our values and principles
