-> related projects, general information and principles -> my personal concept, ideas and mockups

How could we build a discussion platform to solve complex and international problems? How could the structure of discussions on complex problems be translated to an online interface in order for a community to collaborate on solving those problems?

I think our world needs an online governance platform. A platform which allows people to facilitate, discuss, mediate, structure, build up and understand issues, solutions and knowledge. A collaborative platform where everyone could work on policy and debate and make things happen.

This could be all areas: personal, community, political, corporate and organisational, NGO and non-profit governance.

The idea is to weigh, discuss, structure and mediate projects/questions/problems that arrive from a community-based website comparable to, yet more complex than Quora. I'm developing a workflow which could serve as an example. Please let me know if you'd like to join the brainstorm. Skype: erikwillekens 0486 66 10 84

Hi Erik,

Very interesting topic, I'm not sure if you are aware, but we recently created a census of tools for participatory budgeting in there, you will find numerous tools used particularly for the aspect of online deliberation.

If you haven't seen it already, I also suggest that you check out Adhocracy:

Totally agree - something like this would be very useful!
