Political Workshop

dansk Deutsch español Nederlands slovenčina

This project is aimed at closing the gap between the "political class" and the "ordinary citizen" as well as the apparently opposing ideas of freedom and public spirit, efficiency and philanthropy, ecology and economy.

It strives to be a platform for all who want to contribute to human society, be it on a local, national or global level. Thus it obviously opposes some conventional ways of using power.

The major part of this site is written in our native German language: German Version.

At this time we have only translated our proposal for the internet tool to support decision-making which you find here: Woki.
