For this webinar, we provided an overview of the steps that were organized on Decidim during the containment period and are now preparing for the post-pandemic period. From the organization of participation and solidarity in the territories to the writing of stories of containment, as well as possible solutions for a post-pandemic world, this webinar aimed to highlight these initiatives carried by the organizations of our ecosystem, both public and private, and to question more generally the perspectives of participatory approaches for the coming months.

Among the "containment x participatory approaches" themes we will deal with are the following: 

  • What are the alternatives for hybrid participatory approaches that are organized around face-to-face highlights? A 100% digital approach, yes, but how? 
  • What are the new opportunities to organize mutual aid and solidarity on its territory? 
  • What is the impact on the culture and internal governance of an organization?  
  • Containment as an opportunity for post-pandemic projection?

Among the public institutions, associations and companies we have mentioned:

A participatory platform for the Citizens' Climate Convention

A participatory platform for the Citizens' Climate Convention


Since 4 October, 150 randomly selected citizens have been meeting at the Citizens' Climate Convention to discuss the question of how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 40% by 2030, in a spirit of social justice.

Since 25 October (second session of the Convention), a digital platform has been receiving external contributions from all citizens and organisations. Three intermediate summaries will be produced before the next sessions to feed the work of the 150 members of the Convention.

Why Decidim?

Open Source Politics has been commissioned to set up a platform based on the open source software Decidim . All proposals from participants are public and available on the platform:

The choice of Decidim and its open code is in line with the Convention's principles of democracy and transparency. The platform allows everyone to express themselves in confidence regarding the protection of their data.

6 themes :

The platform allows contributions to be submitted on the five working areas of the Convention. A sixth space is reserved for transversal contributions.

The citizens and organisations registered can submit one contribution per theme and per intersession on the platform (i.e. a maximum of 18 during the whole Convention).
