DemCon 2018 - July 18th to 20th 2018

 

The Democracy Convention  – or DemCon – is an annual gathering of academics, NGOs, activists, journalists and technologists who understand that we are on the cusp of major changes in how democracy is exercised around the world. DemCon seeks to create the conditions for building a real, immediate, non-intermediated democracy with regular and deep citizen participation by learning from organisations and people engaged in moving democracy forward.

DemCon is organised by the Solonian Democracy Institute, a non-profit think tank that takes its name from the statesman who ushered in reforms that created the foundations for the development of democracy in ancient Athens.
