#DIFhub18 Morning T(ech): Digital Citizens Co-Creating Smart Cities

MiVote is a social solution to a social challenge that uses available technology to allow scale and speed. We live in a world where we can have one-to-one, one-to-many and many-to-one conversations, and instantly access more information than at any other time in human history. There is no longer any reason to persist with a representative government designed in a time and for a world that no longer exists.

The legacy system of community decision-making that we’ve dragged into the 21st century has stopped being fit for purpose; it has been gradually eroded to a point where it no longer serves the single purpose for which it was intended.

When: Monday 3rd September 2018, 10 am to 11.30 pm

Location : Curate Space, Level 6, 306 Little Collins Street

A Recording of the session will be made available on demand in the coming days.

In a world of steam trains and telegrams, decentralised democratic options were not feasible – it made sense for the community to defer its decision-making power to an elected representative to enact its will. For the most part, communities are no longer constrained by geographic distance, limited access to information or reduced ability to be heard. There is no need to hand over our self-determination to another in the hope that they will act in our best interests until, years down the track, we have another opportunity to vote to keep or replace them.

MiVote is a community decision-making platform that provides equal, instant access to everyone so that, if they choose, they can make an informed choice, on every issue, every time, and build the future the community wants, together.

The next generation of democracy is here.
