The participatory platform of the Parliament of the Brussels-Capital Region and the French-speaking Parliament of Brussels.
The French-speaking Parliament of Brussels and the Parliament of the Brussels-Capital Region have commissioned Open Source Politics to set up a platform to make it easier for the people of Brussels to access the participatory democracy processes of deliberative commissions and petitions.
This platform allows you to submit thematic proposals (citizens' suggestions or petitions); to sign these proposals; and to follow their progress.
The suggestions and petitions are all analysed by the services of the two assemblies, which that they comply with the admissibility criteria.
The "Nancy Citizens' Assembly" project is based on the"Ma pépinière d'idées" initiative, which aims to expand participatory democracy in Nancy .
Launched in September 2020, the Nancy Citizens' Assembly, made up of Nancy citizens chosen at random (from the electoral lists and from a group of volunteers), had the objective of drafting a municipal constitution to provide a framework for all of the participatory tools, methods and bodies of the city of Nancy: neighbourhood life workshops, participatory budget, neighbourhood bodies and various participatory mechanisms.
of Open Source Politics
The Assembly worked exclusively in remote mode (videoconferencing), from trainingwebinarsto special sessions to finalise the text, including hearings with citizens, elected representatives and academics. Before, during and after these 12 video-conference sessions (!), the Assembly members were accompanied by students (publicists and communicators) at all stages of the process, with theOpen Source Politics teamcoordinating, organising and preparing the sessions.
The keys to success:
Full use ofcollaborative and complementarytools, on and off the platform
Expertise inremote consultation engineering
A platform that allows asynchronous collaboration on complex text
How we have
The Nancy Citizen Assembly chose Decidim to set up its participative platform. They used a space on the platform to archive the work at each stage.
Thanks to the platform, the Assembly was able to work in a collaborative manner thanks to the collaborative text module. The first version of the text was thus able to be commented on, article by article, paragraph by paragraph, to prepare the examination of the final text and its adoption.
Faced with the need to ensure a transition towards sustainable food, the Metropolis of Lyon is committed to developing a metropolitan food strategy aimed at moving its food system towards a more sustainable, inclusive and resilient system.
This platform makes it possible to highlight the different stages of the metropolitan food strategy, but above all, it allows the inhabitants to participate actively in it, by contributing to the formulation of the Territorial Food Project co-constructed with the actors of the territory.
Keys to success
A mapping of food actors in the territory
A collaborative monitoring tool compiling a raw monitoring, to which citizens can contribute, as well as a monitoring refined by themes or by the emerging needs of community stakeholders.
Experimenting with a collective agenda that can automatically retrieve the agendas of different organizations.
Type of project: Real-time monitoring of achievements
Launched in 2016, the citizen council of Rilleux-la-Pape has carried out a large number of projects. The Decidim platform set up by OSP allows the inhabitants to see the progress of these projects. The inhabitants can consult the projects that have been implemented, those that are in progress and those that have not been selected.
Keys to success
A catalogue of projects, provides an overview of the achievements of the citizen council
The projects' state of implementation are displayed in percentages to enable the inhabitants to accurately follow their progress.
Type of project: Concertation, consultation, calls for proposals
As part of a project to develop digital tools and their usage, the joint association of e-collectivities wanted to set up an online platform for local authorities in the Vendée region. The platform makes it possible to organise consultations with citizens, surveys and votes, calls for projects to support innovation, idea boxes to stimulate creativity, or even to launch a participatory budget in order to allocate a budget to projects chosen by the inhabitants.
