    This is a session of real citizen democracy. We take turns presenting various ideas to one another for how to improve our society, and we solicit the support of other citizens for our ideas. However, what makes our process extraordinary is our technology. In our Citizen Assemblies we use the Egora networking platform, “The Worldwide Stock-Market of Ideas”. Egora enables everyone to
    1) develop their own political philosophy out of various ideas,
    2) determine which ideas are most strongly supported by the people, and
    3) use a simple algorithm to find the true representatives of the public will (so we can organize to elect them into public office to actually realize our ideas).

    Keep in mind that this event is part of a much larger process – it is a continuing series of events. You can jump in at any point, but consider your first meeting as preparation for the next meeting. Once you are familiar with our process, we encourage you to lead a discussion on a topic of your choice.

    Lastly, our meetings are always open to everyone from around the world. As it turns out, we––the people––are all on the same team, and we are stronger when working together! ;-)
