Future Democracy ’10 – London 2 December

Future Democracy ’10, the UK’s leading annual conference on all aspects of e-democracy, from e-campaigning, e-petitions and e-voting to the use of the internet and new technologies in the policy cycle; democratic activity and engagement. The event – Headstar’s seventh – is set to take place on 2 December 2010 in central London.

This year’s programme is almost complete, and is set to feature MPs, analysts, academics, practitioners and citizen representatives. A great British compliment to last week’s PEP-NET summit.

The venue for this year’s event has changed to the Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden – hopefully there will be more power sockets and better wifi connection than RIBA was able to offer last year!

See you there… oh, yes, almost forgot to mention that the highlight of the day will surely be the future of e-petitions workshop will will include yours truly and other people from the EuroPetition project (not sure exactly who yet).

    Aside from the hashtag, do you know if any of the conference will be conducted online or streamed?

    • Hi Mark – I don’t know. I’d suggest you ask Dan Jellineck at Headstart. It’s a new venue this year, so it may be that video streaming is possible. Sorry about the record slowness in approving your comment BTW!
