Our values and commitments

Participatory democracy

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. 

Collective intelligence

We believe in collective intelligence, in the emergence of an open innovation thanks to 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 arrive at 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 qualityof securitybut above all of transparencyThis is essential for legitimacy of any democratic process.

Social and Solidarity Economy

Open Source Politics is an enterprise in the field of 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 betting on collective intelligence.
