Our vision is a democratic culture in which active participation is natural for everyone.

We explore and develop continuously new concepts of participation which contribute to a more active and democratic culture. Therefore, we develop and utilise our digital tools.

Our values

Innovation

We are convinced that the further development of democratic participation opportunities can not be achieved without innovative ideas - social and technical. Together with its partners, Liquid Democracy e.V. works on the innovation of democracy through new digital tools for better participation.

Participation

We believe that participation is fundamental to promoting the development of a society and its individuals. In order to achieve this, we encourage participation and develop low-threshold participation processes. We also want to live that conviction within the organization.

Non-profit

As a registered association, non-profit is one of the central values of Liquid Democracy. Our work is aimed at promoting and disseminating new ideas and approaches to the topic of participation for the benefit of the general public.

Open Source

We attach great importance making our work transparent and creating added values that can also be used by others. For this reason, we develop open source software which is defined as publicly open code that can be viewed, changed and used for free.


Independence

As a non-profit association, it is important for us to be independent in terms of content and finances from the influence of politics, the state and the economy. We select our topics and activities ourselves and orient ourselves exclusively to the goals and values set by us.
