What is WeDecide?
WeDecide is based on decidim, an open source web platform developed to facilitate large scale online participatory democracy initiatives. It came out of citizen democracy initiatives in Barcelona and has been implemented in jurisdictions across Europe, in New York City and Quebec. You can find out more about the background of this platform here: https://decidim.org/
The platform is being used to facilitate the VGM proposal development process, in which any GPC member can turn an idea into official party policy!
All of the motions and debates are visible to the internet, but only GPC members can post content.
If you'd like an account on WeDecide, to post comments on proposed policies and motions, then please make sure you are a current member of the Green Party of Canada and email firstname.lastname@example.org with Subject line: "WeDecide account request" and your registered email address. You should receive an invitation to the site within one business day.
