Rethinking Democracy – When Design meets Politics

Accenture (Gather Ticket Required - Register Here).

Democracy is in crisis. All around the world we’re using electoral systems that are no longer fit for purpose. Public participation isn’t state-owned 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. As designers and citizen activists, we’ve started designing new processes that help citizens make better decisions, and have figured out how we can design to bring more convergence between people. In this workshop, Fjord, Design and Innovation from Accenture Interactive, will take a Service Design approach to map the gaps that lie behind current voting systems, and design potential solutions to generate a healthier decision-making process for the common good.
