What role is there for citizens’ voices in our increasingly digital parliaments? How can legislatures best facilitate digital engagement?

From Brazil to the Maldives, legislatures are moving key parts of their work online. As parliaments increasingly adapt to the digital world, this webinar asks “What options are most effective for including citizens’ voices in virtual parliaments?”

Our conversation will include leading international voices drawn from UK Parliament, academia, and the participatory technologies ecosystem.

Too often, the worlds of government and technology can feel disconnected and devoid of a common language. Bridging this gap, the series will bring together leading voices at the intersection of government and technology, crafting conversations between entrepreneurs, public servants, researchers and investors interested in digital innovation with public purpose.
